With Lent and Easter in our rear-view mirror, we will begin a new series for the next five months… you read that right, the next five months. 

Our new series is Women of the Bible.

Even though our focus will be on Women of the Bible, this series isn’t just for the ladies, we will be looking at what we all can learn from these Women of the Bible. 

This week I will kick off the series with Abigail, no not my daughter, although I do think she is pretty fantastic.  The other Abigail in 1 Samuel.

The full story can be found in 1 Samuel chapter 25. 

There is a lot going on in this story, if you look at the story through the perspective of Abigail, what do you notice? 

Do these verses give us some insight…

1 Samuel 25:32-35          New Revised Standard Version Updated Edition

32 David said to Abigail, “Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who sent you to meet me today! 33 Blessed be your good sense, and blessed be you, who kept me today from bloodguilt and from avenging myself by my own hand! 34 For as surely as the Lord the God of Israel lives, who has restrained me from hurting you, unless you had hurried and come to meet me, truly by morning there would not have been left to Nabal so much as one male.” 35 Then David received from her hand what she had brought him; he said to her, “Go up to your house in peace; see, I have heeded your voice, and I have granted your petition.”

Here is Abigail’s story you can share with the young ones in your home…

Where have you discovered a good thing hiding underneath a struggle?

Can you remember a time when you were surprised by someone’s unexpected generosity and humility.

What can we learn from Abigail? 

Let’s talk about it on Sunday.
