Some want to say that the Bible discriminates against women. They point out how many of the main figures are male and that God Himself is referred to as male. But the are many observations that can be made to show how much God values women. The next time someone tells you that the Bible is not fair towards women, run these facts by them:
God designed women to be the gender to give birth to both men and women. So all of mankind comes through them.
The Savior of all people was born through a woman without the involvement of an earthly male. Matthew 1:23
Women were responsible for saving the life of baby Moses. Exodus 2:1-10
A woman (a prostitute!) helped Joshua win the battle of Jericho. Joshua 2:1-14
A woman was the only member of the church who was so valuable to her people that she was recorded being brought back from the dead. Acts 9:36-41
The church is referred to as being the bride of Christ. Ephesians 5:22-33
There is nearly a whole chapter dedicated to the quality of a good woman. Proverbs 31:10-31
Women should never feel like they need to do what men do in order to be valued. God has made women valuable according to His design. His glorious work!
