Have you ever wondered, as I have, about the time when Mary sat and listened to Jesus, and Martha complained because the housework was left to her? Jesus noted that "Mary hath chosen that good part." I can't help but wonder what they would have done for food if Martha also had let the housework go. Time after time in the Bible, we see how often Jesus ate with others.
And that brings to my mind, 1st Timothy 2:15, where it says, "Notwithstandng, she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety." It seems to me that women will have a special place, even in Heaven, despite their missing some church work. I also think about our not working on the Sabbath, when a mother has a meal and three or four children to get ready for Sunday School and Church, before she can even comb her hair.
There are many women listed in the Bible…I find over 200, beginning of course with Eve. Both good and bad are named, like Bathsheba, who actually may have felt duty-bound to the king, and good Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Esther has an entire book of the Bible, and Aaron's sister, was a woman prophet (Exodus 15:20). And Phoebe was a deacon (Romans 16:1). And Deborah was a prophet and judge, and got credit for winning a battle in Judges 4:4.
Abraham's wife, Sarah, is named, but the wife of Moses is not, and I've wondered about that. And as for today, there are many find lady ministers. And one more of my thoughts; that were it not for women, there might not be any churches! Thank God for all of them.
