Jesus had a conversation with a Samaritan woman coming to a well to get water. It is a great example of how to engage others as you walk with God. Samaria was just a place along the route that Jesus was traveling. He had a different destination to get to, yet Jesus knew He was in Samaria on that day and at that time for a reason. Jesus also used the moment to teach His disciples to look for similar ways to help others grow closer to God. We have similar opportunities every day. Alan Nagel describes how this happened for him.

Alan and his wife found themselves asking the question, "Who have you brought into my life?" That's a great question to ask ourselves. Walking with Him involves so much more than reading and studying with only yourself in mind. He wants you to be a part of changing the lives of those around you. Is there someone that comes to mind that you can help today in his or her walk with God? It doesn't have to be a grand master plan. Sometimes a word of encouragement or a simple act of kindness makes a big difference.
