Saturday, March 18. John 4:5-42 tells the well-loved story of the Samaritan woman at the well. What aspect of the story is the most important to you—Jesus’ inclusive grace towards a woman who was a foreigner to him, or her own desire to drink of living water?
Words from the Word: Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”
– John 4:10, NRSV
Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture using audio lectio from John 4:5-42.
