And now, in 1 Samuel, we read the story about a wise woman who saves a city. How does she do that?
She was wise in her approach to Joab, she didn’t let emotions get in the way, and she had a good suggestion which she was willing to follow-through.
She speaks truth into the situation. Joab is going to ‘take down’ the city in order to get one man. The wise women spoke to Joab, reminding him that this was a peaceful city with a strong history of faithfulness to Israel.
And Joab agrees to just take the man and leave the city alone.
Just like that.
A wise woman speaking truth saved the lives of the people living in that city.
Please give us wisdom, Abba Father.
