Imagine the Samaritan Woman at the Well in the Gospel today. Jesus extended her the dignity that others would never give a Samaritan, a woman and a known sinner. By calling her into relationship instead of shunning her, Jesus was able to help her find redemption, hope and faith. Today’s story reminds us that each of us in known and loved by God no matter how we have failed. We need to remember to treat ourselves and every person we encounter with dignity and compassion.
