Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 43

43. You are a Jew, I am a Samaritan (John 4:9).

How quickly we look for the walls that separate us. They are so familiar to us that we feel we must find them so we can define the box we live in. Here, the woman is more aware of why this conversation shouldn’t happen than she is ready to rejoice that it could happen. Now, this moment will turn out well for her, but how many valuable moments do we miss because of the boxes we prefer to live in? How quickly do we disregard the possibilities of a new day in favor of the days we already know–many of which are unsatisfactory and bring us great unhappiness?
