3rd SUN LENT – “He told me everything I’ve ever done…”
She was thirsty. She went to the pit to draw water. Jesus, the fountain of living water was there, but she was not impressed. She had been coming to the pit for a long time. She didn’t know the water didn’t slake her thirst.
Having five husbands revealed her inability to be nourished by anything or anyone she chose to slake her thirst.
That’s our story, right? “Fill me! Fill me, dammit!” And because we go to the source over and over that never works, we remain thirsty.
What if we brought our equivalents of “five husbands” to the Lord? Here I am. Thirsty. Take me to the well, your well, Jesus.
“Jesus met the woman at the well. And he told her everything she’d ever done.” Sing it!
