We just completed week 2 of “When It’s Not Your Fault but You Pay the Price,” and what a whirlwind it was! We’ve been working through the story of Jephthah and Jephthah’s unnamed daughter in Judges 11 and 12.
We are begging God for an understanding of Him through the reading, studying and discussing of His word that will encourage us to grow in our faith and to lessen our doubts.
Here are some of the takeaways our group came up with as a result of going through this story:
The true meaning of obedience and how essential it is to a broader understanding of our text
the dynamic of the limited view of our present lives versus the big-picture view of God’s purposes(s) and how we fit into His eternal plan
the importance of the heart, the hopes, and the lamenting of a woman at the end of our text
how some elements of the story of Jephthah’s daughter remind us of Christ
I’d love to continue this discussion and hear how others of you have been impacted by this story!
