Take Our Ten-Day Challenge
I know just what you need. Homework!
All right, all right. I can almost hear your collective groan through my computer speakers. But I promise, this ain't algebra. I want you to spend ten days digging into God's Word for the Truth about how He designed you to function.
If you're a LYWB.com bloggie, you know we've been tackling femininity all month. And this is the last post on that subject for a while. For the remainder of June, we'll be moving on to the subject of media. But that doesn't mean I want you stop thinking about biblical womanhood—just the opposite. I hope these posts have just greased the gears in your head and started you thinking about God's plan for your unique femininity.
And I don't just want you to take our word on this stuff. I've written a lot about biblical womanhood this month; Kimberly's written about biblical womanhood; Dannah's written about biblical womanhood; Paula's written about biblical womanhood. And if that wasn't enough, we also interviewed some "experts" like Carolyn and Rachel for their two cents. It's all been good stuff, but our opinions don't amount to a hill of hooey if they don't line up with God's Word.
Kim actually challenged one of our readers to do a ten-day Bible study based on posts from TrueWoman.com. I thought her challenge was so great; I'd issue it to all of you.
Check it out.
I am challenging you to use these next couple weeks (or less) to a ten-day Bible Study on Biblical Womanhood 101!
Although it's summer break and you're probably set free from school assignments, don't use the summer to "veg out." Take this opportunity to do some hard-core Bible study and investigate these issues for yourself!
As you read through the posts you will find at the ten links below, you'll find the answers to these questions:
- What is submission?
- Can you be equal in worth and value as a person but function in different roles? Doesn't equality mean "sameness"?
- Isn't the submissive position and helper role an inferior position?
- If the man is the leader, does that mean the woman isn't involved in making any decisions?
- Does being the "leader" make the husband more important than the wife?
- If I'm a natural leader, will I have to forfeit that gift when I submit to a husband?
- Is there any reason for women being the primary caregivers for the children rather than the father?
I think some of the answers may surprise you.
If possible, print out the different posts from each link with the questions I've issued here, and then pull out your Bible and a pen (or your computer with a new doc) and get to work!
And you know what I'm going to ask you to do next, right? Hop back on the blog and tell us about it. In fact, I'd love it if you'd leave us comments sharing what you've uncovered all along the way.
I will be spending my next ten days a little differently. I am going to use that time to pray specifically that God would use this challenge to give you a vision of His plan for you and to make your passionate abut being a biblical woman and thankful that you're a girl.
If you're ready to take the challenge, just leave us a comment below. We'll use this post as a forum to cheer you on!
