Tired and thirsty, Jesus sat by Jacob’s Well, while his disciples went to the village of Sychar, about a half mile away, to buy food. It was about noon, the hottest part of the day, and a Samaritan woman came to the well at this inconvenient time, to draw water. In his encounter with the woman at the well, Jesus broke three Jewish customs: first, he spoke to a woman; second, she was a Samaritan woman, a group the Jews traditionally despised; and third, he asked her to get him a drink of water, which would have made him ceremonially unclean from using her cup or jar. This shocked the woman at the well. Although they had never met before, Jesus revealed that he knew she had had five husbands and was now living with a man who was not her husband. Jesus now had her attention!
As they talked about their two views on worship, the woman voiced her faith that Messiah was coming. Jesus answered, “I who speak to you am he.” (John 4:26, ESV)
As the woman began to grasp the reality of her encounter with Jesus, the disciples returned. They were equally shocked to find him speaking to a woman. Leaving behind her water jar, the woman returned to town, inviting the people to “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did.” (John 4:29, ESV)
In our current time Amber Rose publicly criticized an alleged relationship between Khloe’s 17-year-old sister Kylie Jenner and 25-year-old rapper Tyga.
During an interview in February Rose said:
“That’s ridiculous. [Tyga] should be ashamed of himself. For sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.”
Khloe took umbrage with Rose’s remarks and went on a twitter rant against the model, tweeting, “‘I was a stripper since I was 15 years old,’ Amber Rose told the disc jockey.
Khloe Kardashian took offense and started punching via social media.
Please don’t worry about my sister who has a career & her sh** together at ONLY 17,” Khloe, 30, wrote. “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
Well, Amber Rose took the role of the woman at the well after the encounter with Jesus had a candid conversation with Entertainment Tonight’s Brooke Anderson.
Watch the video:
Our human tendency is to judge others because of stereotypes, customs or prejudices. Jesus treats people as individuals, accepting them with love and compassion. Do you dismiss certain people as lost causes, or do you see them as valuable in their own right? Amber is wearing her title and is delivering the news to others who are running from the truth.
Just some food for thought.
