The Woman at the Well

I'm sitting at home thinking about the woman at the well. Throughout history it seem to me that she's gotten a bad rap. Many have associated her with the woman caught in adultery or a woman of ill repute. I think those are unfair labels. Unfair because Jesus didn't send her away saying "go and sin no more." He didn't. In fact she was so touched by her encounter with him that she left his company to evangelize and tell others that she met the messiah.

I can't help but thinking about how sometimes we think that we're not worthy enough for Jesus love and grace ... but keep in mind he came for everyone the meek and the lowly, the foreigner and native and even you and me.
