The Wise Woman at the Well

They happened by each other in ordinary life. They met each other in their thirst. They both needed each other.

Jesus asked for water, and she backed away. Then Jesus backed away. But the woman moved closer. Then Jesus moved close again, and they remained there. She saw the goodness in him and moved toward it. Her openness changed the course of events. Her openness was more important than any mistake she had made. Her ability to draw near to Jesus is what makes her life, is what defines her.

Her openness invited Jesus to more freedom and boldness. His goodness invited her to connection. She impacted him. He impacted her. Jesus wasn’t threatened by her strength and glory. She wasn’t intimidated by his goodness.

They created something special together.
