I was reading a blog this morning that pointed out that the Bible “exalts women far above what the feminists have. It spoke of women, 4,000 years ago, of honor, dignity, rare jewels, and strength. Why would we want to trade that picture for anything else?”
Isn’t that a neat thought? We’ve been so brainwashed by the feminists for the past couple of generations that we tend to think the Biblical image of a woman is some kind of a beaten down doormat-type, but the truth is that women are shown as strong and beautiful. Proverbs 31 is all about a woman who is loyal, industrious, hardworking, charitable, and wise.
Now the only problem is that there are also passages that talk about a woman having a “meek and quiet spirit” and some of us don’t exactly fit that description. I loved what this same blogger had to say about that too–some very reassuring thoughts.
God never meant for women to be trampled, but neither did He intend the opposite. Isn’t it neat how when we do things God’s way, we’re happier? It all just works!
