Jacob’s well was there, so Jesus, since he was tired from the journey, sat right down beside the well. It was about noon. (For his disciples had gone off into the town to buy supplies. ) Now many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the report of the woman who testified, “He told me everything I ever did.”
[John 4:6,8,39 NET]
The bits of wayside work are very sweet. Perhaps the odd bits, when all is done, will really come to more than the seemingly greater pieces!… It is nice to know that the King’s servants are always really on duty, even while some can only stand and wait.
