“And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.”
1 John 4:21

In Jesus’ day it was a well-known fact, Jews and Samaritans did not socialize together. Another part of that time and tradition was the fact that Jewish men did not openly speak to a woman in public. Jesus goes to the town of Sycar and while He is there resting at the well, He strikes up a conversation with a Samaritan woman. Not just any woman but an outcast, despised, lonely, and sinful woman. Jesus shows kindness to her and elevates her value in society. Jesus who knew all about her showed her love, care and compassion. He did not condemn her but overwhelmed her with His love.

Jesus chose to break the ethnic barrier and extended an act of kindness toward the Samaritan woman by talking with her. As a result, the woman was saved and her testimony led to many more Samaritans being saved. Many were saved because Jesus chose to show his love to one person. There are a lot of people coming to your well today. People will come with many problems and they will be looking for your love and support. Now Jesus is not here at the well physically, but you are. Let His love and compassion be shown through you.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help us to cross all barriers as we extend Your love and kindness to others.
Amen
