It was noon, and the Samaritan woman was doing the same thing she did every day. Gathering her empty water jug, she walked to the well alone. It was not an accident that she chose this time of day, but an intentional effort to elude the other women. She wanted to avoid the stares, the whispers, and the condemnation she knew she deserved. To her shock and surprise, the woman encountered a hero at the well that day: a Savior who knew her secrets and offered her living water.
