Romans 16 - Day 334 (link to today's reading)
Scripture: Romans 16:1
Observation: Paul introduces Phoebe, a deaconess in the church in Cenchrea, to the Christians in Rome.
Application: Without Jesus, the world would be very different today and I believe that men would still treat women as expendable objects whose sole purpose is to bear children (consider the Taliban Muslims who ruled Afghanistan with and iron first in the 1990's). Jesus, on the other hand, viewed and accepted women as equals for they are also created in the image of God.
Prayer: Lord, help me to support and promote Your daughters at Waiokeola...
