Abraham and Sarah
Romans chapter 4 talks about Abraham and Sarah in regards to the promise God made to Abraham. The writer mentions that when the couple was blessed with children, Abraham was about 100 years old. The writer DOES NOT mention Sarah’s age.
Take-away – Never ask or say a woman’s age out loud or in writing or ever.
Mary, mother of Jesus
We all know the story of Mary being the mother of Jesus, although she was a virgin. There was a period of 9 months where Mary had to be showing… a big stomach, and all. The Bible never mentions anyone commenting about this.
Take-away – Never, ever, under any circumstances ask a woman if she’s pregnant.
Rahab is credited with helping Israel take over the Promised Land of Jericho. Also according to the Bible, Rahab might have been a prostitute. She is considered one of the most beautiful women in the Bible. There aren’t any verses about the Israel men talking about her job.
Take-away – It’s OK to notice a beautiful woman, but never ask her if she’s a prostitute.
Mary and Jesus
When Mary, Jesus’ mother, told Jesus to do something at the wedding when the wine was all gone, Jesus hesitated at first. But one thing He didn’t do was hesitate twice.
Take-away – Do what your Mama tells you.
Ruth’s story is a good one. In a nutshell, after becoming a widow she found Boaz and eventually became his wife. It started late one night when she uncovered his feet and laid there all night.
Take-away – Women always make the first move. Men, never suggest otherwise.
Esther was credited with saving the Jews when the king was going to have them all killed. Mordecai (Esther’s cousin), asked her to approach the king to ask him to spare the Jews. Mordecai went to her twice for this, but never asked her, “Are you able to do this?”
Take-away – When you want something done, ask a woman.
After Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, they recognized their nakedness. They made clothing out of leaves. If Eve ever asked, “Does this fig leaf make me look fat?” I hope Adam knew the right answer.
Take-away – Never tell a woman, under any circumstances, that they need a Peloton stationary bike.
