Today’s reading: Judges 4:4-5
God uses women, too
We read in Judges 4:4-5:
4 Now Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, was judging Israel at that time. 5 And she would sit under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the mountains of Ephraim. And the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.
One of the biggest objections people have when it comes to the Bible is it prefers men over women. This is never the case. In the story we read in Judges 4 and 5, we see how God used women as well to fulfill His purpose.
We first read about Deborah who was a prophetess and judge. This shows us that when men fail in doing their job, God raised women to replace them.
Moreover, we are also introduced to a woman named Jael, who eventually killed Sisera. It’s quite interesting how a proud and powerful general and military genius like Sisera was killed at the hands of a woman.
This is not the only instance in the Bible that we are shown how God valued and used women in accomplishing His work.
Sadly, our society artificially created a war between men and women. People try to compare and make two sexes fight instead of making them complement each other.
Yahweh intended that both men and women would work together. By becoming the strength for the weakness of each other, men and women could harmoniously achieve common goals.
Because of feminism and the wrong concept of gender, we see how our society is torn apart. No one says that men and women should compete with each other. Life would be much better if the two sexes worked together.
