The writers of the New Testament (especially Luke) seem to have a special place in their heart for women. I love to look at these women and think how I might follow their example in seeking and serving the Lord:
Mary and Elizabeth—responded positively when chosen for special roles in God’s salvation.
Anna—widowed, led a life of active devotion to God, saw & proclaimed the Messiah.
Mary & Martha—pursued special friendship with Jesus like few probably had. Mary gave lavished her treasure unreservedly on Jesus.
Woman with bleeding—believed, touched, was healed & blessed.
Widow who gave two coins—did beyond the expected, gave everything!
Sinful woman—came where she was unwelcome in order to see Jesus, repent and be forgiven.
Priscilla—exercised leadership gifts along with her husband and Paul, hospitality, consistent life and teaching.
