Jesus’ Conversation with the Samaritan Woman

Today’s nudge: What stands out in your mind in the story of Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well?

I think the biggest thing that stands out for me is the example Jesus set for us today. In His time, Samaritans were looked down upon as the “dogs” of their time. Jesus went against all the political correctness and racism of his time to share God’s message with these “social rejects”. He treated them for what they were: humans created by and loved by God who were in need of God’s saving grace — just like the Jews. We should do no less.
