Cisterns: musings

Be thy heart a well of love, my child,
Flowing, and free, and sure;
For a cistern of love, though undefiled,
Keeps not the spirit pure.

From Phantastes, by George MacDonald. (1905)

Proverbs 5:15 Drink water from your own cistern, flowing water from your own well. 16 Should your springs be scattered abroad, streams of water in the streets? 17 Let them be for yourself alone, and not for strangers with you. 18 Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, (ESV)

A cistern, as I understand it, is a reservoir, usually dug into the ground, for holding water.

This post is, in part, one of an occasional series, based on my daily reading from the ESV Bible.
