“By faith Rahab the harlot did not perish along with those who were disobedient, after she had welcomed the spies in peace.” Hebrews 11:31 ASB
I have been reading the book of Joshua in which a woman named Rahab is discussed and is instrumental in saving God’s people by one simple act of hiding two godly men.
She was listed as a “harlot” or prostitute in the Bible. But she is a true hero to me because of her actions in the face of adversity. In the New Testament, Rahab is mentioned as a great example of faith and the book of Matthew aligns her lineage to Jesus. She is an example that God doesn’t just look at what we’ve done in the past (good or bad), but what we are capable of doing in our present & future. Sometimes, it’s just one small act of openness and strength to go against the culture that changes our future.
