"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Approach Boldly

“The Woman at the Well” by Diego Rivera (Mexican, 1886-1957)

Greek icon, date unknown, “Woman at the Well”

The award for the “Lady with the Most Chutzpah” in the New Testament might be viewed as a toss-up between the Samaritan woman at the well and the Canaanite woman with the sick daughter. Neither is named, but both take on theological debates with Jesus that are pretty gutsy. The Canaanite woman may have the edge for the prize in her verbal sparring with Jesus. He was ministering to His own people, the “house of Israel,” but she insisted that even dogs deserve kindness, and Jesus marveled at her faith. Approach God boldly in prayer!
