Banquet of God’s Will

The story of “The Woman at the Well” from the Third Sunday in Lent is filled with so many dimensions that it is well for us to consider it once again. You might focus today upon the scene with Jesus and the disciples, while the woman leaves and witnesses to her people about her encounter with Jesus.

Jesus moved the woman and she moved him. The greatness of his hunger is revealed—hunger for her salvation and the salvation of all of us.

Meditate upon the image of food and doing the will of God. Jesus teaches in the Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6). Discovering and doing the will of God give a joy and satisfaction to the soul far surpassing any other banquet table.
