Beautiful Women Part 1--Of Sizable Importance

In the last few weeks I've seen the topic of size and women's self-image on several blogs. As I prayed about this, the Lord gave me the most wonderful homework, and I pass it on to you.

Find in the Bible the size and weight of any of the following women:
Ruth
Esther
Naomi
Rahab
Debra
Sarah
Bathsheba
The Shulamite Woman in Song of Solomon
Abigail

I'll give you until Friday to find out, and then I'll tell you the rest of what God had to say about it.

Blessings!!!

Interesting assignment Jerri - you know I never thought about the weights of any of those ladies. I just thought of them as women I could learn from.

Jerri,
Ok I see your point that God has not put a size and weight on any of these ladies. That He considered that beautiful in and of themselves. So .... what else has he been telling you? I did just receive the book "Captivating" so that will be my reading as I recover from back sergery in the next few weeks.

Mary B emailed me:

Did my homework last night, and it was just as I suspected - not ONCE was height or weight mentioned.
"Just" beauty, wisdom, intelligence and most of all, favor. What a thing our current society has foisted on us! But to be honest, there has always been something- a false standard.

Imagine being a parent barely able to pay bills and someone comes to your home and promises to educate your daughter and find her a job. You agree, hoping to give her a better life. Then she disappears, and you find out she is not being educated. Instead, she is a prostitute, a victim of human-trafficking, beaten and abused daily. Sounds like a nightmare, doesn't it? For 100,000 girls in India, this is reality. To find out how you can help, please visit Red Light Rescue.
