Jesus was clearly offering her a spiritual gift, but the Samaritan woman was only looking to fulfil a physical need. Boy don't we do the same things today. We hear blessings from God's word and think beautiful houses, we hear about riches and think a big bank account....Jesus ministry was a gift of Himself for our failings and He deserved nothing that He received.
Why do we feel like we deserve the worlds comfort when we are no longer of this world? The only riches that we can amass are ones we will only receive in Heaven. I loose this perspective so often, I love stuff like everyone else. We forget that EVERYTHING that we have is a gift of God and we did nothing to deserve it. Whether we have much or little, God's real desire is to bless us spiritually and we did NOTHING to deserve that, either.
Praise Him for all of the good things and seek His spiritual blessings!
