I wanted share some of my reflections and opinions (in a light hearted manner) of how many burdens women have carried for man, in serving God. BTW- I am a man. There are many, many more than I will list... share some of yours if you like:
1.) Eve took a temptation and was deceived by Satan, Adam deceived by flesh, and blamed the flesh(woman)...could not this man not stand on his own two feet and confess he alone chose to go against God's command ... Yes, so to did the woman disobey.... but, I believe God knows all and if we can put an infant in a crib to protect them from harm how much more could God have keep them from this tree if he wanted? the 1st battle of free will vs. God's will? Eve= mother of all living-- sounds like an honor to me.
2.) Thank God, for the woman that saved us from a blind man named "Laughter"(Isaac), and ask the curse to laid on her for the deception....Rebekah for Israel (Jacob)
3.) Thank God, for the woman who was brave enough to hide her infant child from being killed, and Pharaoh's daughter who took this infant in....> Moses
4.) Thank God, for a foreigner's display of Humbleness & Faith... Ruth >>> Obed, Jesse, King David
5.) Thank God, for the woman whom... David praised God, for saving him from sin....Abigail ( David married her )
6.) Thank God, for a queen that gave much in the pursuit of wisdom of the Lord ...Sheba >>> Solomon gave her back more than she gave in both precious material and wisdom of God..... Jesus also noted her concerning Judgment
7.) Thank God, for Esther...what a great story of selfless courage and faith
8.) Thank God, for Mary... the flesh mother of Jesus Wonder why God left man out of the conception
9.) Thank God, for the Canaanite woman who in Faith begged as a dog for a crumb to save her Daughter Jesus praised her and raised her daughter
10.) Thank God, for the woman who poured the expensive perfume on Jesus in burial preparation... Jesus -" her story will be told throughout the world"
*Thank you Jesus, for coming thru and to a woman 1st .. in birth and re-birth in resurrection.
*Thank Jesus, for revealing your Compassion, Mercy, and Love in the from of WOMAN..... As a mother in travail, Hen gathers her chicks(mother and infants), as a Mother comforts her child(OT), infants would could not receive milk.
*Thank Jesus, for helping, talking to, and comforting many women(in a time when the so called Spiritual leaders shunned women)
*Thank God, for no woman plotting to kill or killing his flesh.Thank God, for woman's many acts of Love to God's son and helping him endure this world.Thank God for man's helpmate and Jesus for telling us the greatest is the servant... so perhaps we ought thank God for woman who selflessly bear,feed, care for, teach, and protect our most prized flesh possession Our Children(God's gift and Lessons)
A son marries, He and his bride have children and the son becomes both a son and a father. The child has both a Mother and Father, even though the husband and wife are one before God!! Hmm, One can be 2, as in husband and wife are joined as one before God.
Just some thoughts !!! I fear in our times, we spend less and less time in our our most important flesh JOB >>> Mother & Father
Final thought, How can Jesus be the son of man, if man was not involved in his conception? Was he not born of Woman and Spirit? this seems more like the Spirit of Woman to me, and he certainly acted like a Loving Mother on his path to bear the burdens, feed, teach, heal, protect, and Love his children on earth.... Never harming, When the children get too far out of hand mother say's Wait till your Father gets home, and he delivers the punishment. Confusing thoughts, wisdom, or logical common God given truth????? For God confuses the wisdom of self-conceited wisdom. Thank you God, for Woman.....the end.
