If you've ever had the chance to visit Niagara Falls then you know that there's a lot of water flowing down those falls. In fact, in just 30 seconds, 33 million gallons gush over that precipice. We wish we could say that this is how much water Americans drink each day, but in reality, this is the amount of coffee that is consumed on a daily basis!
But aren't soft drinks, coffee, and other beverages just as good as drinking water? "The fact is, coffee, tea, cola, and chocolate drinks cannot come close to the beneficial effects of water. Studies have revealed that brown drink users lose body fluid due to the diuretic effect of tea, coffee, and soda.

Also, more is lost through hard work, exercise, hot temperatures, dry air, alcohol and caffeine consumption. The average person only drinks one cup of water a day! This means that the body is forced to get it's needed water from other fluids and foods.
The average person should drink at least 6-8 glasses of pure water each and every day. A general guideline is to drink 1 ounce of water for every 2 pounds of body weight. This means that you should drink half of your weight in ounces. Here's what that equals out to:
“Ho, every one
that thirsteth, come ye to the waters.” Isaiah 55:1. Water isn't just
important for our physical health, but if we want to survive spiritually,
then we need Jesus, the one who gives water that springs up "into
everlasting life". (John 4:14)
