You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink.
Remember, I’m older than you and think of all the old-time sayings. I grew up hearing these things and one’s internal computer keeps them filed for times like these.
Jesus offered Sam the Living Water at the well in Samaria. I hope you remember the story because we don’t have time today. You could read it here.
Sam at the well with Jesus is one of my most favorite Gospel stories. What I love about it are the logistics. Samaria was full of Samaritans – a group of people considered “less than.” It was that place “on the other side of the tracks.”
HE had to go
He told His disciples “He had need to go.”
Because you see, He had an offer to make to our girlfriend, Sam. (I named her, the gospels do not.)
Sam took Jesus up on His offer and it completely changed her life. But there are times we read when folks did not take Jesus’ offer and they went away sad.
Make the offer
I am not a conventional medicine person. I love learning about non-conventional methods and preventative measures. I want everyone to know about them yet not everyone appreciates the offer. So I offer anyway.
Because Jesus did. He offered.
You can offer a person truth, but you cannot make them accept it.
