Movie Magic-Part 5 in a Series on Biblical Womanhood

Think back to Sunday School. Remember Sarah, Rebekah, Rachael, Leah...Deborah!?

When imagining adjectives for these women, "weak" doesn't come to mind. Cunning perhaps, but doormats never. God used women to build up nations. Have you ever noticed how only through their mothers did men reach their destiny? There used to be a saying "behind every great man is a great woman". This has gone out of vogue of late, but I believe there is great truth to it. Women shape nations. Even without being a direct force in the world, we are the ones behind the curtains.

Before I go further I'd like to acknowledge that there are biblical women front in center! I think this proves very clearly that some are called to this role. However, since those women are more cherished in today's society, I'd like to focus on those of us called to be wives and mothers.

Back to the stage! Imagine a production without anyone running the sound. There is no crew to run the lights, no stage managers to corral actors, and no technical crew to build the set. All you have is a few dim, quiet actors in street clothes. Not exactly a magical experience!

It is obvious to everyone who's ever been in a theatre production that the technical crew is every bit as important as the star. Even a production composed of the most brilliant actors of our time would be lackluster at best if these celebrities were left solely to their own devices.

I'm sure you've picked up by now that in the grand production of life, Biblical Women are the technical crew. We're the ones to avert disaster with a well placed nail or seam, the ones to review lines 47 times to ward of stage fright. We are the clean up crew, and the lighting heads who somehow spotlight all the good while casting shadows on the bad. We're the ones who make everything run smoothly, and with a little luck, magically.

Now of course, this works much better if our star is as good an actor as we are manager. Everyone knows that the best crew in the world cant stop a production from running into the ground if the cast is dead set on it being there.

But with a good cast and good crew our lives are almost certain to be blockbusters.
