I read 1 Samuel 25 and Luke 1 this morning. I read Romans, including chapter 16, yesterday.
I love the Bible’s portrayal of these brave women. Abigail, Mary, Elizabeth, Junia, Prisca
, Phoebe, and others.
There is a sense of fullest devotion in the stories of these valiant ones that rivals and often surpasses that of many of the men of the Bible. For instance, Abigail’s intercession for her husband’s men (and her worthless husband himself) saved not only them, but also David.
