55. But no one asked, “What do you want?” (John 4:27).
Really? No one asked? Jesus is engaged in conversation with a woman of questionable reputation and none of the disciples found a reason to ask Him or her what that was all about. Remarkable! Why the disinterest? Lunch. The disciples had gone to town for food and had returned, ready to eat. They were consumed with their stomachs and let the life-changing moment this woman experienced pass them by unnoticed. How often we likely make the same choice. We are so consumed with our daily needs that we look right past the harvest that buds around us.
