DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 10:1-29; Jeremiah 18:1-23; Philippians 3:1-4:1

Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. John 4:6, NKJV

Listening to the conversation of tourists who had come to draw water from the well in a resort village, I recalled that one day Jesus “sat thus by the well.” Think of that the weary Saviour waiting to give a woman a drink of “living water”! Still today, He wants to eternally satisfy the thirst of those who are drinking of the never-satisfying wells of pleasure, fame and wealth. To such He says, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink” (John 7:37, NKJV). —Robert Steele

I heard the voice of Jesus say, “Behold I freely give The living waterthirsty
one, stoop down and drink and live.” I came to Jesus and I
drank of that life-giving stream; My thirst was quenched, my soul
revived, and now I live in Him. —Horatius Bonar
