5 life lessons from the parable of the 10 virgins about purpose

5 life lessons from the parable of the 10 virgins about purpose

So, in the last few weeks we have been doing a lot of talking about Relationships in the context of The Parable of the 10 Virgins.

I don't want to flog a dead horse but there are just a few more life lessons that we can glean from these 10 amazing ladies that I'd really like to share with you, lovely. 5 to be exact! Including:

  • The importance of preparation (being ready rather than getting ready)

  • How to wait on God (hint! This is not a passive process!)

  • How to spot and avoid red herrings (opportunities that look good but really aren't)

  • And much more- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below!

Lessons from the 10 Virgins on How to keep your light burning

Lessons from the 10 Virgins on How to keep your light burning

So last week, after all our talk about seeking first the Kingdom of God, I ended up going down a little bit of a rabbit hole looking at some more kingdom based parables.

This led me to Matthew 25 where Jesus told the story of the 10 virgins. This passage is seriously meaty and has so much to teach us; so I think that we'll be hanging out there for the next few weeks- especially in keeping with our recent discussions about relationships (here and here).

Today, however, we're going to be speaking about how to keep your light burning as a Christian woman and why that has everything to do with practicing self-care in order to not run out of "oil" (something I seriously struggled with this week!)- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
