Women with an attitude…

As God releases women into their calling and destiny, it’s vital that we maintain a right attitude:

“We have seen how many men have led down through the centuries–through rivalry and competition, position grabbing and control, ego promoting and a quest for the limelight. Women can learn from this. As we have opportunity to take strategic positions, let’s deliberately opt for the path of humility and service.

As women, we are now faced with some choices. We can decide that the church owes us some status, that we deserve position and authoirity, and that we have the right to take what is legitimately ours. Or we can willingly choose to lay down our rights and to serve with humility in whatever God is doing. We have the advantage of centuries of learning how to serve and lay down our lives for others. The body of Christ will be richer as we willingly embrace that calling, moving ahead into whatever he would have us do.”
