I love that word. It indicates progress. Moving forward.
Where? What direction are we, as women, going?
Solomon’s book of Proverbs. Thirty-first chapter. Verses ten through thirty-one. A beautiful role model is spread. A virtuous woman.
More specifically -
…A certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.
A woman with a virtuous heart. From her abbreviated story we see an example to follow.
Lydia displayed, in human form, what Proverbs 31:10-31 describes.
The heart of this blog is to explore, deep and wide, the biblical pattern this virtuous woman so beautifully exemplified.
Over the next few weeks, we will take a closer look at each of Lydia’s 5 strengths; and from those channels our fountain of topics will spring.
So join me in Becoming Lydia – a virtuous woman.
