…He had to go through Samaria on the way.
I love that Jesus always had plans for people while he was on the way somewhere. In this case he wanted to reach out to a woman who had a bad reputation around town and to be able to share hope for a new life with her. Let’s look for opportunities to share the good news of Jesus “along the way.” In picking up kids to go play at the park, or meeting a friend for coffee, or while out shopping. It’s in these along the way moments that some of the most profound ministry happens.
Jesus open my eyes and my heart today to recognize opportunities to minister to people I cross paths with or who you direct me to connect with. Amen.
