Scripture:   John (NIV) 4:6  Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well.  It was about noon. 

Observation:    "…tired as he was …" God, the Son had laid down His divinity to live a man.  The Creator lived as the creation.  The God who watches over Israel, who never slumbers nor sleeps, laid aside his deity to such an extent that He got tired!   

Application:   I like scriptures that tell about Jesus’ miracles.  I like the scriptures that tell about his compassion.  But those that reveal his humanity have a special place in my heart.   When I am tired, I am glad to know that He got tired.  He knows what it is to be tired.   He understands the weakness of the flesh. 

Prayer:   Lord, I am so glad that you understand this life I am living.  You know how to help me.  Amen
