It’s time for another online Bible study session as we continue with True Woman 101 by Mary Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss. We’ve just finished reading week six in the book and I really don’t want the study to end! I’ve been blessed by my small group and the conversations we have each week- I feel like I know you personally. Many of the small group leaders are sharing similar stories of fellowship and bonding over the subject of Biblical womanhood. I’m excited to see where our final two weeks of study lead us…
This week as you studied your workbook you saw how feminism has shaped our culture, your own thinking and future generations. We looked at anger and it’s impact on women as a culture, including the extreme “girls gone wild.” On page 146 we looked at acceptable behaviors for women based on our culture. As part of your homework assignment, you then went back and checked those traits that you saw in yourself. Since I’m the mother of a teenage daughter, I did the same exercise for her and was shocked at how much she is “fitting in” to a socially acceptable climate. Someone in my small group mentioned this resembles a “plumb line” and we need to constantly check to see if we are in alignment with God’s desire for women.
“Smarten Up” was the message towards the end of our lesson this week. We’re more informed than when we started our journey to Biblical womanhood, and now our task is to adjust the plumb line. We’ll learn more about this next week. Continue with your daily study, dig deeper into scripture and invite the Holy Spirit to speak to you about God’s design for women.
It is truly a blessing to participate in this study with you!
