Day 19 - Women Play A Significant Part In Giving To God's Work
"Joanna the wife of Cuza, the manager of Herod's household; susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them (Jesus and his disciples) out of their own means" (Luke 8:3)
I must admit, I get a little tired of the lingering debate by some Christians about the role of women in the Church. The Gospel writer Luke clearly highlights the integral role of women supporting the ministry of Jesus and Paul reminds us that "there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28). We should celebrate all the gifts that we have to bring without the need to distinguish or discriminate between gender.
