Hello sisters! I hope you’ve enjoyed this week of our study. Our Monday Night group especially enjoyed day 4. “According to 1 Peter 3, the disposition of a truly beautiful woman is gentle, quiet, and amenable (that is, agreeable, submissive, honoring proper authority.”
“Gentleness isn’t self-abasement. It’s the mark of the wise woman who remains calm even in the face of other people’s shortcomings. Gentleness is a “tree of life” (Proverbs 15:4). David noted that it was God’s gentleness toward him that “made him great” (2 Samuel 22:36 &37).”
“A quiet spirit is the opposite of an anxious, distressed, disorderly, and clamorous one. Quietness goes hand in hand with trust. “In quietness and in trust shall be your strength” (Isaiah 30:15). Both are a result of righteousness: “the result of righteousness is quietness and trust forever” (Isaiah 32:17).”
“An amenable woman says “Yes, Amen!” to input. She responds positively to guidance and direction. She welcomes it. A godly woman is a “lead-able” woman.”
Here are some discussion questions. You can share your thoughts and comments here, write them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you. These all come from the homework.
1. What are some ways in which a woman might demonstrate a sincere and pure devotion to Christ?
2. Read 1 Peter 3:4-6 and describe the type of disposition that Peter associated with godly womanhood.
3. When you encounter a difficult or challenging situation, do you respond with “gentleness” or “loudness”? What do your responses reveal about your heart?
4. Which aspect of a womanly disposition do you find to be the most challenging: gentleness, quietness, or amenability? Why and how can you grow in this trait?
We had a great discussion in our Monday Night group. Click here to see our video. I hope you enjoy it! Please let us know how we can be praying for you!
In His Love,
