The Samaritan Woman

There are so many things I love about this story. The fact that Jesus spent a few minutes with someone that most religious people would have avoided speaks volumes. He found an outcast and turned her into one of his most effective missionaries. He approached her with love and sincerity. He showed her respect and compassion. And she refused to let her past keep her from a mission greater than the mistakes she had made.

It’s a beautiful story.
