it’s November, and I just found out that it’s National Podcast Post Month. Podcasters around the world are encouraged to post episodes each day of the month.
So how is All God’s Women celebrating? I’m doing short shout outs to obscure Bible women who are mentioned with only a sentence or two. But they were significant enough that God wanted to preserve them for posterity and let us know that these were women to be honored.
Each episode will be just a couple of minutes, but long enough to call them out and give a brief bio.
We open with the Old Testament women who donated their jewelry to the tabernacle in Exodus 35. Their hearts were stirred, their spirit was willing and they brought gold earrings, nose rings, and necklaces as an offering to the Lord. We don’t know their names nor how many women there were, but we know that they were generous and gave sacrificially of their items of worth so that they might be used in God’s tabernacle.
Lord God, thank you for letting us know that it wasn’t just the men who contributed to the building of the tabernacle, but that women gave as well. They may not have had much, but they had their jewelry, and they gave it up. May we be generous as well, giving freely to You from the bounty You have blessed us with. Thank You for Your many blessings. Thank You for allowing us to be a part of Your work. We love You. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
