When God created woman, He made a very special creation. He made us beautiful and unique. He made us strong and resilient, gutsy and spirited, sassy and sweet. And He loves us. God really, really loves His girls. And the Bible is filled with many women – some good, some bad – all of who God made, who God loved, and who we can learn many lessons from.
So far in our Women of the Word series, we have looked at over 110 different female figures in the Bible. They all have something to teach us. So, (drum roll, please). Here is our eleventh series recap:
- The daughters of Zion were haughty, flirted with their eyes, were obsessed with their outward appearance, and were judged for their behavior.
- David’s ten concubines were not treated the way God intended for women to be treated.
- Rebekah’s nurse Deborah saw her service as an act of love, was busy, and was the unsung hero of the family.
- Drusilla heard the Gospel from Paul, but we have no evidence that she gave her heart to Jesus.
- Dorcas was always doing good, was always helping the poor, left behind a legacy of love, and caused many people to believe in the Lord.
- Elisha’s mother was godly and loving.
- Gilead’s wife and Jephthah’s mother did not give birth to an illegitimate child.
- Jabez’s mother cared for her son.
- Jeremiah’s mother was a godly woman who raised her son to serve the Lord.
- We have two things in common with Jesus’ sisters: we too are Jesus’ sisters and Jesus is also our brother and our Savior.
