Kingdom Stories

 

When we think of heroes of the Old Testament we most likely think of a long-haired strong man or a Hebrew baby turned Pharaoh’s son turned Israel’s liberator.  Or perhaps we think of a shepherd-boy who became a king or we think of a prophet shouting for justice.  All these are true but do we also think of a woman of ill-repute who chose God’s side?  Do we consider a judge who led her people into battle and to freedom?  Or how about a refugee who refused to leave her mother-in-law’s side and so became the ancestor of the Messiah?  In the month of November we consider some great leaders from the Old Testament who happened to be female.  Don’t miss this journey into the past that teaches us about our present.
