Scripture: John 4:1-42
When you’re making pancakes, it’s important not to over-mix the batter. Leaving a few lumps allows the pancakes to rise fluffy and full. It’s the same with whipping cream: it can be tempting to keep mixing “just a little bit longer” – but too long and you’ve got butter. In this week’s reading from the Gospel of John, Jesus warns us against over-mixing the Reign of God. The harvest is not four months away; the grain is ripe now!
