TIRED AND THIRSTY
"Then cometh he to a city of
Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob
gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacobís well was there. Jesus therefore, being
wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth
hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her,
Give me to drink."
Are you tired and weary of the struggles you face every day? Jesus
understands as He also was weary. Sometimes we forget or donít realize
that Jesus understands completely the heartaches, trials, and temptations
that we face in this life. He endured loneliness, heartache, and
He was thirsty and He asked the woman for a drink of water to refresh Him.
We were not there to give Him a drink of water, but we can give our
family, loved ones, and friends encouragement and love. We can
quench the thirst in their hearts for love and understanding by extending
the Love of Jesus to them.
Are you giving Jesus a drink of water by encouraging and loving people?
Are you giving Him a place in your heart to live? I urge you to make
Jesus happy by the way you treat your family, loved ones, and friends.
