A Valuable Woman

"And the LORD said to him, 'What Zelophehad's daughters are saying is right. You must certainly give them property as inheritance among their father's relatives and turn their father's inheritance over to them.'" Numbers 27:6-7

Do you sometimes think that God is limiting you rather than opening doors of opportunity because you are a woman? Then you believe the wrong press about him. God is the one who allowed women to inherit the land. God is the one who put the Savior of the world into a woman's womb. Jesus is the Lord who appeared to women first after his resurrection. God is not biased toward men; on the contrary, he teaches us that men and women have equal value in his sight. When you give him your devotion, when you sit at his feet and learn from him (see Luke 10:38-42), he'll treat you with dignity and give you the delights of your heart.

As a woman, are there particular qualities of God that you relate to differently than a man would? What is your view of how God treats women?
