Psalms 42:1-2, "As a deer longs for streams of water, so I long for You, God. I thirst for God, the living God."
The woman at the well. You have probably heard this "story" a million times... but it is not just a story. It is true.
Jesus is walking to Galilee.
So Jesus takes the short route and walks through Samaria. That was unusual in His day because the Jews considered the Samaritans "unclean" and they didn't want anything to do with them.
Jesus walks up to a well and asks a Samaritan woman for some water. She is confused. She is a Samaritan, a woman, and is an outcast in her community. She asks Him why He would ask her for water. They converse for several minutes. He tells her things about her that are true. I guess you can just imagine how she feels... probably confused, wondering, and puzzled. Then Jesus tells her about a living water. He tells her about Him, and who He is. She believes and goes into her town and tells everyone about what Jesus told her.
She probably thought -at first- that she was worthless, unloved, unimportant. Jesus showed her that she is priceless, loved, and very important.
We can learn from this.
We are loved, priceless, special, important, and valued to our heavenly Father.
We who believe are daughters of the One True King.
