So often in Scripture Jesus is weary and seeks to rest, yet another need arises. He always defers to the other. Jesus is weary when He meets the Samaritan woman at the well, yet He makes her need His own.

In caring for the Samaritan woman, Jesus is energized. When I accept the challenge to be a servant, God waits there to bless me.

Dear God, when I am weary, give me strength. When I am interrupted, help me look for You in the other. May I be open to being surprised by you today.
