Women of the Word: Women Who Ate Their Children

Monday, May 8th, 2017

women-who-ate-their-children-wotw

In 2 Kings 6:24-33, we come to another one of the Bible’s tragic stories. It is truly a sad, nauseating retelling of a horrible event that took place, but this tragic story is yet another reason why we know the Bible is true. In His Holy Word, God honestly tackles difficult subjects – rape, murder, adultery, lies, war, famine, and betrayal; and He honestly shares the good, the bad, and the ugly about His people’s lives from Adam and Eve to Peter and Paul.

In the Scripture passage we’re looking at today, the city of Samaria was under siege by the king of Aram, Ben-Hadad, and his army. The siege lasted so long that a famine fell upon the city and people began to suffer the terrible effects that often accompany war – starvation, grief, and madness. Madness is the best word I can think of to describe the horrible thing that two mothers did to their children because the famine was so terrible.

One day during the siege, the king of Israel was walking along one of the city’s walls when a woman cried out to him, “Help me, my lord the king!” She then told him her horrible story. To avoid starving, she had made an agreement with another woman to eat their children. They agreed to eat the first woman’s son first and then to eat the second woman’s son the next day. So, they killed the first woman’s son, cooked him, and ate him. But when it was time to do the same with the second woman’s son, that woman hid her son, and now the first woman is full of anger and despair and is demanding the king help her.

What is the king’s response to this horridity? He tears his clothes and wears sackcloth. And then he blames God and the prophet Elisha for causing such a disaster to come upon his city and his people. There is nothing he can do to help the woman who has sunk to such a desperate low as to eat her own child and then has the audacity to ask for help in eating another woman’s child. What is there to learn from the women who ate their children? (more…)

Women of the Word: Lemuel’s Mother

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

lemuels-mother-wotw

Most of the book of Proverbs was written by King Solomon; however, the last two chapters of the book have different authors. Agur wrote chapter thirty, and King Lemuel wrote chapter thirty-one. There are some who say that King Lemuel was actually Solomon, in which case his mother would be Bathsheba (Lemuel being a nick name that she gave him), but there is no clear evidence of this, so we are talking of King Lemuel as a totally new person. King Lemuel begins his chapter by giving credit to his mother for being the inspiration behind his wise sayings through the things she taught him. The first verse reads:

The sayings of King Lemuel—an inspired utterance his mother taught him.

King Lemuel’s chapter is most known for its section on the “Proverbs 31 woman.” Perhaps King Lemuel knew what attributes a woman of noble character had and could describe them so well because he saw them exemplified in the life of his own queen-mother. (more…)

Women of the Word: Elisha’s Mother

We all know who Elisha was. He was a mentee of the prophet Elijah, and later became Elijah’s successor, a great prophet in his own right who worked many miracles. We don’t know so much about Elisha’s parents. Elisha mentions his father and mother once in 1 Kings 19:20. Before leaving home for good to follow Elijah, Elisha said, “Let me kiss my father and mother goodbye, and then I will come with you.” (more…)

When God created woman, He made a very special creation. He made us beautiful and unique. He made us strong and resilient, gutsy and spirited, sassy and sweet. And He loves us. God really, really loves His girls. And the Bible is filled with many women – some good, some bad – all of who God made, who God loved, and who we can learn many lessons from. (more…)

Women of the Word: Queen Mothers of Kings

queen-mothers-wotw

I find it interesting that when reading about the kings of Judah and Israel in 1 and 2 Kings and 1 and 2 Chronicles, the mothers of these kings are often mentioned. One of the first queen mothers that we looked at was Abijah or Abi. She was the mother of the 13th king of Judah, Hezekiah, and is mentioned in the Old Testament books of 2 Kings 18:2 and 2 Chronicles 29:1. Abi’s son did what was right in the sight of the Lord and is remembered as being a good and godly king. Below are fourteen other women who were also mothers of kings. Did their sons turn out as well as Hezekiah?

Women of the Word: Daughters, Sisters, Wives and Many Mothers of Life

There are several women mentioned in the Bible that Scripture only gives scant information on. Besides the fact that they existed back in the day, we don’t know much about their lives. All of them were daughters, some were sisters. Most of them were wives, many were mothers. Despite their flaws and imperfections, we can be certain that each one of them were important to God, were loved by God and were uniquely created by God for a specific reason.

Women of the Word: Abijah or Abi

abijah-wotw

Abijah (or we can call her by her nickname, Abi) is mentioned in the Old Testament books of 2 Kings 18:2 and 2 Chronicles 29:1. She was the mother of Hezekiah. Hezekiah was the 13th king of Judah. He was crowned at twenty-five years of age and reigned for nearly thirty years. Both verse 3 of 2 Kings 18 and verse 2 of 2 Chronicles 29 say that Hezekiah “did what was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father David had done.” He was a good and godly king. For this reason, Hezekiah gets considerably more spotlight than his momma, but I think there’s still something we can learn from her.
