The Well

There is a story in the Bible about an incident surrounding a towns well, very interesting story. So Jesus comes to this well after a long walk and ask the lady standing next to it to please give him some water. She looked around and said out of curiosity.Are you asking me, to get you some water? Nobody talks to me in this town, they(the towns people)think I'm a Huzzy. Why are you talking to me?Jesus said ,if the shoe were on the other foot, and you asked me for a drink, I would offer you a drink of living water. She looks at Jesus, and says what are you talking about, living water? Wells are deep and you don't have a utensil to pull the water up. She still thinking he's talking about a physical well.Jesus said,who ever drinks regular water, stays thirsty. Who ever drinks the water that I give them will never be thirsty. The living water (the living word & life's lessons) is all you need. She said, you must be somebody pretty special to say that. I'd like some of that water. Then she said,I had heard that there's a special person coming to save us sinners some day. Jesus said to her, I am he. In life people can be too quick to judge. Too apt to close off listening to others. Try not to do this. Blessings are blocked everyday by doing so. Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
