Who’s Better?

boy-and-girlIn the book Children’s Letters to God, one little girl wrote: “Dear God, are boys better than girls? I know you are one, but try to be fair.”

Sometimes we have to be reminded of the importance of women in the Bible. Deborah was a judge. Anna was a prophet. Several woman are listed in Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus. Women were the first ones to spread the good news that Jesus had risen from the dead. Priscilla was a key player in the evangelistic work of the early church. Phoebe was a special servant in the church.

The list goes on and on.

No, little girl. Boys are not better than girls!

“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”—Galatians 3:26-28
