A Wise Woman


“A woman unacquainted with the Bible, and ignorant of its contents, affecting her own conduct, character, and history, has yet to know the finest threads of female loveliness.
The Bible is the best mirror by which to know what you are and to become what you should be.”
  ~ John Angell James (1785-1859) ~

True understanding and honest surrender to God’s will brings out the best that He has for us; man or woman, girl or boy.  This requires a life-long dedication.  God’s Word affects everyone…whether or not they believe in God.  It affects us in ways we have yet to understand.  Romans 12:1-2 speaks about renewing our minds with the Word of God. This happens when we read and study God’s word.  And by memorizing and meditating on Scripture, we become more acquainted with God and His Word.  Only by humility and God’s grace may we ever hope to become who we should be.
