â€œAnd the servant ran to meet her and said, “Please let me drink a little water from your pitcher. So she said, “Drink, my lord.” Then she quickly let her pitcher down to her hand, and gave him a drink. And when she had finished giving him a drink, she said, “I will draw water for your camels also, until they have finished drinking. Then she quickly emptied her pitcher into the trough, ran back to the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels” Genesis 24: 17 â€“ 20
This is the story of Rebekah in the bible who got married to Isaac, Abrahamâ€™s son. There Is no way we will talk about good women in the bible that we wonâ€™t talk about Rebekah, they always use her as a good example for women to emulate
She wasnâ€™t idle; she was busy doing her work for that day when she met with Abrahamâ€™s servant. She didnâ€™t just sit and was looking but she was active, and thatâ€™s how she met her husband
She has a very good character, she is well mannered. When I was reading this passage, I smiled because I imagined the ladies we have today. How many of them carry this kind of character? How many of them are well mannered?
I wonder what our ladies today would have told the servants. Why should I give you water? Or maybe they will give him water with some attitude but I am very sure they wonâ€™t suggest giving all his camels water to drink. Even if the servant should suggest it, what will be their response? Let me guessâ€¦.. I canâ€™t give all your camels water, its hard work fetching water from the well, apart from that you are the man here, so you should do the work of fetching the water.
When Rebekah was doing it, little did she know she was actually being watched with the plan of her receiving her reward instantly. You are a single lady, and complaining that no good guy is coming your way, donâ€™t be deceived, no good guy will come if you have a bad character.
Oh, you can speak in tongue? You can sing and fire will come down? you are righteous and holy, all these things are good but they donâ€™t guarantee you meeting a good man if your character is bad.
3 She is beautiful
Oh, you are pretty, so itâ€™s getting into your head, look Rebekah was very pretty too, see here
â€œNow the young woman was very beautiful to behold, a virgin; no man had known her. And she went down to the well, filled her pitcher, and came upâ€. Genesis 24: 16
she is very beautiful but still doesn’t allow her beauty to control her. Some ladies will say, I have been fasting and praying but still nothing is forthcoming, nothing will come if your character is bad. Â The good guys walk with their eyes open, which means they are seeing your character hence why they stay far from you.
Sometimes ladies sees a bad girl getting married then they say, why will a bad girl get married to a good man while I have been a good girl and still no man. She might be a bad girl but her character might be better than yours many folds.
If you are a single lady without any good man knocking, itâ€™s time to change your focus on your character, then watch if that good man wonâ€™t come knocking. Itâ€™s never too late. Be guided
Itâ€™s a wonderful Monday morning with the resurrection of our lord Jesus Christ in the air. Have a wonderful holiday. Look forward to another edition next week Monday
