As simple as a cup

What does it mean to be a disciple?
Giving a cup of water to a child, what could be more sweet? But it is this seemingly insignificant act that Jesus uses to describe the acts of his disciples. Simple & selfless, it is this kind of action, done for the right reason that signifies what a disciple is and what they do. Following Jesus by loving him and loving people, simple and selfless.
So, why don't we do it more often?
(Not because it makes us feel good, not because someone on TV tells us to, not because we feel guilty, not because we should - because we're a disciple and that's what Jesus would do.)

Matthew 10:42 - And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.
