Biblical Womanhood: Defy Pt. 1
This past Friday, the girls started on our Biblical Womanhood message series: "Defy."
We really hope that through this, you guys can get a clear picture of the unrealistic and contradictory expectations the world places on girls in our generation, and that you guys would be emboldened to defy the norms that our culture has told us we need to conform to in order to feel loved and accepted.
Each week, we'll look at different women in the Bible who defied the culture of their times in order to honor God. This week, we talked about 3 amazing women: Moses' mother, Shiprah, and Puah.
I'm thankful that through these talks we can really reveal and discuss how foolish it is to believe in the lies our culture is trying to spoon-feed us each day. It's my prayer that as we study more of the women of faith in the Bible, we ourselves will grow more and more confident in the fact that a life spent honoring God--though it isn't always the smoothest or easiest life--is indeed better than a life spent following the ways of the world. Let's each continue to work hard and encourage one another, so that at the end of the race we can say that we've done our best to please our Lord!
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose."
