Leading Ladies

In the beginning of Luke 8 we read about three women who contributed their own resources to support Jesus and His disciples. Yes, Jesus and the disciples may have been preaching and teaching but they were only able to eat because of leading ladies like Mary, Joanna and Susanna who supported them financially. Praise God for their example! We are blessed to have our men in church too but, let’s be honest, without the strong and faithful leading ladies, like the vast majority of all churches, you surely would have to close your doors. They are the majority of our Sunday school teachers, choir members, board leaders and office staff; they watch our children in the nursery and host coffee fellowship. So, I encourage you to give to your church. Perhaps you can do so in memory or in honor of a leading lady that made a big difference in your life.
