Today's reading: John 4:31-45
Although Jesus has been traveling on foot all day and is physically weary and hungry, he puts off satisfying his physical wants because of the spiritual opportunity that's right before Him in Sychar. The message Jesus delivers to his disciples is clear. Spiritual opportunities are abundant all around us, and we need to be intentional about looking for them and then taking action in order to impact lives for eternity.
"Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together" (vs. 35-36).
On a scale of 1-10, how intentional would you say you are about looking for opportunities to demonstrate or tell others about Christ? Is it your practice to ask God to open your eyes to spiritual things and the spiritual needs of others as you go about your day? Why is this important? Tami
