today i began reading through a book which asks the reader to consider and write with reflection. it is a great book, which i have tried to read often but have been unable to focus as i read. now i am reading it with new vigor and interest. i am learning so much and hearing what he is saying in a really amazing way.
An interesting point that i had to consider was the story of the samaritan woman who drew water from the well for Jesus. The writer made the point that the woman did not consider her own desires and wants but rather what the Lord needed. when he spoke to her her bucket was empty and instead of taking water back to the village she took living water back to the village.
Her role was priestly for a while.
considering this story via the book was really good.
