What strong women these women of the Old Testament were! The roles that many of them were asked to play were difficult and challenging ones, but they were able to rise to the occasion. If they could not win by frontal assault, they won by charm or conniving. These were not plastic saints whose lives bear no resemblance to our own. In spite of the fact that thousands of years separate them from us, they seem as real as our next door neighbors. It is because Deborah and Judith, Esther and Eve, Susanna and Hannah, Naomi and Ruth and all the others are so real that they are worth reading and thinking about. “All Scripture,” St. Paul tells us, “was written for our instruction.” There is so much that modern-day women can learn from them. No matter whether they are wives or mothers or neither; no matter if they are ambitious or retiring, gentle or rambunctious; no matter if they are young and beautiful or old and wrinkled, there is someone in the Old Testament like them. These women were women of destiny. They tell the women of today that they, too, are women of destiny, whatever their path in life may be.
