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 130 different female figures in the Bible. They all have something to teach us. So, (drum roll, please). Here is our thirteenth series recap:
- Grandmother Maakah found out that it pays to do wrong.
- The Midian women were casualties of war.
- Micah’s mother forgave her son, but did not rebuke his wrong behavior; she also tried to worship the one true God and other false gods at the same time.
- Naaman’s wife and her little servant girl were concerned about the well-being of others, namely Naaman; and the little servant girl bloomed where God planted her.
- Nereus’ sister was a part of the Lord’s people.
- Noadiah tried to hinder others from doing good by making them afraid.
- Paul’s sister raised her son to be brave.
- Job’s first daughters lived to party, did not feel the need to ask God for forgiveness on their own, and they were not the center of their father’s life.
- Tryphena, Tryphosa, and Persis were women who worked hard for God and were united in faith.
- Judith and Basemath were a source of grief to others.
