A Story That’s Not Just for Mothers

Melody Workman Week 4

The stories we have in the Bible teach us how to live by inviting us to see ourselves in the characters and experiences. In the Old Testament, there is a famous story of a woman named Abigail who through her humility and wisdom overcomes an intense and trying circumstance. Abigail is a powerful example for us of a woman in the Bible who led and succeeded by her character. This story invites us to look at ourselves and how we process hard experiences. In God's economy, the wise and humble rise above.

Ask God to show you what your reputation is with those who experience you on a regular basis. Do they trust you to have wisdom and discernment? Or are you reactive and prone to anger? Confess anything you might need to confess to God right now and ask Him to show you where (and how) you can grow in wisdom.

What does the Bible say about what it means to be a woman? The Bible teaches that God made humans male and female and that gender is sacred - but how the church has historically understood the roles of men and women and how they work together has varied. She/Her is a teaching series on what the Bible has to say about God's design for femininity, who some of the key female figures are in the story of the Bible, and what those stories teach us about the gift of women today.
