Women have always been great role models to the society. Women are in general endowed with a lot of values. They have always been the embodiment of love, purity, sacrifice and subtly, But it is quite common that of us look up to women who are a part of the history. But we seldom look up to women who are a part of the religious books. This can possibly be because of the reality factor or the trust factor that differs from one person to the other. In most cases, we take names as role models only to make a pompous show. The more popular your role model is, the better your image is. So here we are going to shun all these clichéd thoughts and list 3 women from the Bible who serve as great role models to the global women. So with no further delay let us get to the list.
Mary, Mother of Jesus:
The Virtue of Obedience
Undeniably the greatest biblical woman is Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. She has often been associated with purity and obedience. In case, if you are a believer of a different religion you might not know the story of Mary. She bore Christ in her womb with the blessing of God, and that is why she is always hailed as Virgin. She was very young and wasn’t even married when she was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit. But it was her obedience to God that elevated her as the Queen of Heavens.
The Virtue of being dutiful
Ruth lost her husband when she was very young. However, when she was given a chance to go to her native to live with her parents and to begin a new life for herself, she refused to do so and decided to be with her mother-in-law. It wasn’t wrong for a widow to remarry, but she understood her responsibility as a daughter-in-law and stayed back to take care of her mother-in-law considering the plight of the old woman. The Holy Bible recognises her as a dutiful and obedient woman.
The Virtue of Wisdom
Wise women who are capable of turning the fate of the whole kingdom were present even during the olden days, and Esther is one such example. Esther was a Jewish woman, and she realised that the kingdom is not in favour of the Jews. She decided to conceal her identity and reach the palace to fight the king. Lucky for her, that she was extremely a stunning woman and she was trained to become the royal queen. Once she takes the throne, she cleverly banishes the wicked souls out of the way, wins the trust of the king and protects her clan.
