John 4:22-23 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth.
I hope I can also be brave enough to approach God the way the woman at the well does. As the verse points out, “Jews do not share things in common with Samaritans.” Still, the woman is not afraid to question Jesus when she speaks to him. She may not have all the answers, but she is open to truth from wherever it may come.
