Scripture of the Week
"Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night." Psalm 1:1-2 NLT
Woman of the Bible Profile
Who is she? Abigail, a beautiful intelligent woman, married to a fool.
Where is her story found? I Samuel 25
What did she do? She used wisdom and good judgment to protect her family from bloodshed and danger.
Pray for women who are/were in danger and decided to preserve thier lives and the lives of her children by leaving an abusive marriage. Pray that she "does not feel like a failure and . . . is not disobedient to God" ("Abigail: Living with a Difficult Husband by Alice Matthews) by protecting the life He created "fearfully and wonderfully" (Psalm 139:14).
Look for a domestic violence shelter in your area to donate basic items we sometimes take for grated: toothpaste, feminine protection products, deodorant, toothbrushes, underwear, razors, children's clothing and shoes, school supplies, etc. When a woman leaves home, sometimes the only thing she and the children have are the clothes on their backs. Prayerfully help consistently, please.
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
