“Let’s get together for coffee.” I love that phrase. We do it at our daily show, “Wake Up.” Coffee is something that can be shared in so many ways. That friend you haven’t seen in 10 years, “Let’s catch up over coffee.” Your spouse, “You wanna go get a cup of coffee?” Your best friend, “Let’s meet up tomorrow for coffee.” A new client, a possible important contact, that new possible love interest… and asking her out to dinner is too aggressive, but coffee, we could do coffee. You sit across from each other, your friend, your sister, your spouse, no real agenda, just chatting. Relaxed, breathing in life, drinking in relationship, laughing, sharing coffee, a new joke, sharing problems, stories of weariness, stories of victory, sharing opinions, sharing advice.
What if you could have coffee with some women of the Bible, heroes from ancient times? What would they tell you? What would they say? Today we will have coffee with six different women of the Bible, to listen to what they might say to you and me. What advice would they offer us? What stories might they share? Sarah, Leah, Jehosheba, Hannah, Deborah, and one whose name we don’t even know.
