Abigail: The Woman Who Saved Her Husband's Neck, single message
This message is part 8 of the series Fascinating Stories of Forgotten Lives.
Tucked away in the folds of Scripture are numerous human-interest stories that are not known by most. Although unknown, they hold within them principles and insights and lessons that are timelessly significant. Even those stories whose origins are multiple centuries old sustain a relevance that is remarkably up to date. We have no difficulty stepping into the scene and identifying with the characters involved in the plot. Such is the case in the story we discover recorded in 1 Samuel 25. It is amazing—change a few particulars, the geography, and the date in which it first happened, and we find ourselves reenacting a series of events as modern as today’s news. As we shall see, it is the story of an unfair boss, a strained marriage, and a greathearted woman whose act of unselfish bravery saved her husband’s neck! Its fairy-tale-like ending makes the story one of the most memorable in all the Old Testament.
