Today we have an interview with Jolynn of Jesus-in-my-heart.tumblr.com, where she shares scripture and inspirational quotes. Read on as she talks about her admiration for Abigail (her favourite woman of the Bible) and what we, as modern women can learn from her.
Who is your favourite woman of the Bible and why? What would you say that modern women can learn from her?
My favourite woman of the Bible is Abigail (who can be found in 1st Samuel 25). The reason why I identify with or like her most is due to her wisdom and peace-making nature, which literally stopped David seeking revenge on her husband- Nabal- and all his people. Our generation could learn from how humble she was and the wisdom she displayed in the face of her husband’s folly.
Please finish the sentence: I am a Christian woman who is...
I am a Christian woman who is saved by God's grace and love.
Please finish the sentence: I am a Christian woman who is not...
I am a Christian woman who is not perfect or anywhere close to who God wants me to be yet but I will get there in His time and guidance.
Any final words of encouragement?
In all that you do, give all your plans and results to God. Give Him the glory He deserves and give yourself as a living sacrifice- even though some of those moments can be tough. As my parents have always reminded me: Honour God and He will honour you.
