Jesus gave no reply to the woman’s request. Yet silence didn’t stop her. It didn’t offend her. It didn’t make her mad.
She recognized Jesus. He is so much greater. He owes her nothing, not even a reply. So she worships.
Because Jesus IS greater. And because He is great she prays, she asks, she makes her request.
Jesus I know you are great. You don’t owe me anything, even an answer, but because you are so great and so good, I’m coming to you, even in the silence, even when it seems I’m being ignored. Because the truth is, You ARE great.
