Mothers Day 2018
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil
Eve suffers in co creating
Adam suffers too
SLIDE: Genesis 3:15 “Her offspring will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
Eve’s heart was broken! Cain kills Abel
SLIDE: His name was Nabal and his wife’s name was Abigail. She was an intelligent and beautiful woman, but her husband was surly and mean in his dealings. 1 Samuel 25:3
SLIDE: NABAL “Why should I take my bread and water, and the meat I have slaughtered for my shearers, and give it to men coming from who knows where?”
Hospitality ignored / greed
SLIDE: Abigail took 200 loaves of bread, 2 skins of wine, five dressed sheep, 100 cakes of raisins and 200 cakes of pressed figs.
SLIDE: “Please pay no attention to that man Nabal. His name means Fool, and folly goes with him.”
SLIDE: David said to Abigail, “God has sent you today to meet me. May you be blessed for your good judgment and for keeping me from bloodguilt.” 1 Samuel 25:32
- The power of hospitality
- She found a way to move forward (Nabal)
The bible never says this was her dream!
It never says that she wanted to remain a widow.
She longed to have a child but never did!
God uses her! She prays! She worships!
Widowhood didn’t mean the end at all!
Anna Gave MARY Strength!!
SLIDE: Eve and Mary
SLIDE: PICTURE. EVE and MARY!
SLIDE: Those who in a moment do something and it is noticed.
Those who do something for years. It is never noticed!
