Gospel Reflection for Kids
In today’s gospel Jesus meets a woman at a well and asks her for a drink of water. She was surprised that Jesus asked her for this. You see, the woman was a Samaritan and Jesus is a Jew. The Jewish people and the Samaritans did not get along with each other. But Jesus had a plan to use the woman to spread the message of God to her people.
Jesus taught her about worshiping God and told her that He is the Messiah. The one that God promised would come to save all people.
Jesus told her about the living water that He gives. He reminded us of Baptism. When we are baptised, water washes away our sin and gives us a new life with Jesus.
