THE DAUGHTERS OF ZELOPHEHAD

There’s a notion sometimes that gives the impression that women are inferior in the sight of God. Nowhere is this further from the truth than in the Bible. God is just, regardless of gender. He is no respecter of persons.

Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the story about the daughters of Zelophehad; the daughters of Zelophehad knew what they wanted; in a culture that did not appear to give much regard to women, they were bold and fearless. They took their matter straight to the highest authority in the land-Moses. Moses was like the President; he was ruler of the nascent nation , after him was YAHWEH  God Almighty, the unseen one. they went to Moses to state their case; they refused to rely on assumptions and hear-says   They refused to be intimidated by their male counterparts. They stood before the highest governing authority and presented their case, and got victory, not only for themselves but for generations of women and families down the line. They brought about a change; a proper interpretation and implementation of the law.

When we face issues in our lives, before we give in and accept the status quo, we should consider pushing in the right direction for what we want; we should learn to take our issues to the right authority. Things are not always what they appear to be. SELAH!
