You are Invited

The Samaritan woman said to Him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) John 4:9

Today you are invited to consider how you deal with a rebuff such as the one the Samaritan woman gave Jesus. Would you give up at once and turn away? Or would you persist? How would you feel if someone from a different nationality or generation or culture asked you for a drink? What would your response be? Ask God to make you aware of how you respond to ‘the foreigner’ in your world – what changes, if any, does He want you to make?

May God bless you with an awareness of His love for all people, whether they know and acknowledge Him or not today.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
