Helping a Woman (5)

John, chapter 4, tells us about a woman from Samaria who met Jesus. Most Jews would think it was strange for Jesus to have a conversation with this woman. First, she was a Samaritan, and most Jews did not associate with Samaritans. Second, she was a woman. And third, she was a sinful woman.
But Jesus did not condemn this woman. Instead, He accepted her as she was. Jesus shared with her about God’s plan of salvation. The woman believed that Jesus was God’s Son, and she told many people about Him.
All people need to feel accepted by someone. Maybe there is a person or group of people who will not associate with you. Even when people refuse to accept us, we can know that Jesus is always willing to forgive us and help us become God’s child.
Are you feeling alone today? Do you need someone to accept you and love you? Turn to Jesus. He will forgive you and fill you with His peace.
