I think Abigail is my favourite amongst others. She exhibited quite a number of chracteristics every christian woamn can pick and learn from.
1) Courage, 2) Intercession, 3)Power of words, 4) Loyalty.

I wrote a piece on this: check it on http://ibysmusings.blogspot.com/

Innocent August 25, 2015 at 4:12 pm

Abigail definitely. Women should be peace makers and should build and not break her family. She is a wise women that portraiys a lot of strength.

O.Smith September 7, 2015 at 10:15 am

My favourite woman is the shunamite woman see 2 Kings 4:8-37
It is by faith she told her husband and the prophet that it well with her and her family that is the words of faith by a true belivers.
Never use negative words.See proverbs 18:21

Doris Leonard November 12, 2015 at 8:51 pm

Abigail is also my favorite among the other women. She was a courageous and wise woman of strength, one who interceded for her family in the midst of danger. I admire her forethought.

Stefani January 11, 2016 at 10:25 am

M.GizmoLoco January 31, 2016 at 2:33 am

All of these women have my most respect. 1luv

Lizz James February 10, 2016 at 12:05 am

1. Rizpah in 2 samuel 3, she took time in the mountain to pray for her generation that the curse upon the family will be broken. For sure it was when Kind David called for her and lifted the shamed,separation e.t.c from the generation. ” she prayed for her generation and they were blessed”

2. Shiphrah and Pauh in Exodus 1, women who feared the Lord, even after being commanded by the king to kill the Hebrew babies, they didn’t do it. When asked the Lord gave them an answer to the king and thus the Lord blessed their household.
” Fear the Lord and your household will be blessed”

Abigail i love the wisdom she had

2 Kings Chapter Verses 8 -10
The one moment in The Bible when a woman is called great and I wonder why the writer didn’t mention her name????

8 And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman; and she constrained him to eat bread. And so it was, that as oft as he passed by, he turned in thither to eat bread.

9 And she said to her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this is an holy man of God, which passes by us continually.

10 Let us make a little chamber, I pray you, on the wall; and let us set for him there a bed, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick: and it shall be, when he comes to us, that he shall turn in thither.

shirley aladano June 3, 2016 at 9:49 pm

My favorites are Queen Esther for her braveness and smartness. Abigail for her quick decissions to save the life of her husband and the shunamite women that she knows were to go in times of trouble

Shawn June 7, 2016 at 12:32 pm

I admire Abigail for her intercession spirit for her household..I’m encouraged by her actions and the Lord will always locate you to a well deserved partner even after a failed marriage.

ntomboxolo August 16, 2016 at 8:14 am

I need a sermon I’m going to talk about a woman of God please send via email . summarise it for me a story of Hana, Ester and the lady who wash Jesus feet while the other one is cooking

Jack Wellman August 16, 2016 at 8:24 am

My friend. Pastors are supposed to do the hard work to study and show thyself approved of God. As a pastor, I would recommend you do your own sermon preparation as you must take notes, find Scriptures to use and then prepare the sermon. Anyone that is sent a sermon is gaining the fruit of another man’s labor. Does that make sense?

Brendon September 9, 2016 at 3:41 am

Awesome article

Jaffar September 29, 2016 at 11:00 pm

Hi. I am wondering if Your site has the same analytical article on New Testament women? I am writing a church musical in which in one of the scenes, the main character meets women characters during Jesus’s time and changes her perception of life through their dedication and work for the faith. Better yet if you have articles of women who’s character had been dubious prior to their encounter with Jesus, but had changed their lives through his love and teachings. God bless

Mahlape October 16, 2016 at 8:03 am

Abigail was a good woman who was given wisdom by God her creator. She did not argue with her husband but take action to protect her family. She has faith that if she can give sacrifice to the King and his servants things will go back to normal. Indeed, God saw her heart and arrested David,’so heart for him not to say no but yes .

jemosbey shirley November 9, 2016 at 1:51 am

Jochebed is one of my favourite people in the Bible. Highly knowledgeable, couragous and wise.

Ampusam Symonette November 25, 2016 at 10:08 am

I love Ruth for her dedication to her husband’s people if daughters were good to their mother in laws we will have a great family time.
Mothers too need to be considerate with their children’s spouses the way you treat them they will take care f your children a lesson my mother taught me.and Ruth is my example, as a result, I try to be the Ruth to my Mum in law despite my adverse culture I love this lady and related to her as I claimed my mother in laws God as my God.
Another lady I admire is Esther , she was placed for the time to be advocate for her voiceless silenced people, so we, too who are placed in roles and power circles ned to speak up for the wrong and for the oppressed or else our privileges are void God places us in high places thus we do not be silent when wrong happens so there.

Beverly Jimmerson December 1, 2016 at 3:23 am

I enjoy reading about the women of the Bible cause the same God they served we are serving today Ruth was a good wife and the loyalty was awesome.Abigail was a woman that help her husband inspite of but God know she deserve better.

Rosemarie March 11, 2017 at 2:35 pm

I love all the women they re great in their own different way am blessed to read about them

RStones March 26, 2017 at 10:09 am

You missed a critical piece of why Abigail is one of the most selfless and faithful individuals in scripture – – she not only interceded to save her family (which is noble in itself), but her purpose was also to save David from sin, because she knew he was still clean before the Lord…

“as thy soul liveth, seeing the Lord hath withholden thee from coming to shed blood, and from avenging thyself with thine own hand…and evil hath not been found in thee all thy days.”

She was protecting David from committing a grievous sin – that is truly selfless! wow.

Tonitia April 26, 2017 at 9:54 am

Great point.

Tonitia April 26, 2017 at 9:53 am

Great point

Jane Kariuki October 27, 2017 at 8:27 pm

Messages very inspiring

Prestina December 30, 2017 at 4:17 pm

Greetings Readers, if I may. I have two that I women I would like to briefly touch on. The first is from the OT and she is Deborah. I am truly inspires because she is like myself and many other women today. Deborah wore many hats (Kingdom Builder – Prophetess, Wife – Ebenezer & Authority Figure – Judge). In simplicity she was graced with wisdom to mutli-tasks. For the Father knows how many talents to bless his servants with. The second woman is Anna in the NT. There is not said about Anna. However, the little that is said, to me is a revealing of the OT Deborah. Anna wore many hats also (Faithful Kingdom Builder – Prophetess, Wife & Widow – Ebenezer, Kingdom & Kingdom Resident – Worshipping, Fasting & Praying). O how wonderful it is to see yourself in the Word of God as it reads you. Because, you do know if you are meditating in the Word correctly, We are not reading it, it is reading us. To God Be The Glory!

Esther is one of my favorite women in the Bible. I wrote a paper about her in my Old Testament class in graduate school.

emmanuel mark May 13, 2019 at 7:25 am

the story of Abigail is very toucheable

patricia lee June 16, 2019 at 7:25 pm

need some INF on abigail what, when, why, how

Jack Wellman June 16, 2019 at 8:01 pm

Hello Patricia. was the wife of Nabal; she became a wife of the future King David after Nabal’s death (1 Samuel 25). Abigail was David’s third wife, after Saul’s daughter, Michal, whom Saul later married to Palti, son of Laish when David went into hiding, and Ahinoam. She became the mother of one of David’s sons, who is listed in the Book of Chronicles under the name Daniel. In 1 Samuel 25, Nabal demonstrates ingratitude towards David, and Abigail attempts to placate David in order to stop the future King from taking revenge. She gives him food, and speaks to him, urging him not to “have on his conscience the staggering burden of needless bloodshed” (verse 31, NIV) and reminding him that God will make him a “lasting dynasty” (verse 28). Jon Levenson calls this an “undeniable adumbration” of Nathan’s prophecy in 2 Samuel 7.[5] Alice Bach notes that Abigail pronounces a “crucial prophecy,” and the Talmud regards her as one of the Tanakh’s seven female prophets. Levenson, however, suggests that she “senses the drift of history” from intelligence rather than from special revelation.

After Abigail reveals to Nabal what she has done, “God struck Nabal and he died,” (v.38), after which David married her. Abigail is described as intelligent and beautiful. The Talmud amplifies this idea, mentioning her as being one of the “four women of surpassing beauty in the world,” (the other three being Rahab, Sarah, and Esther). As the wife of the wealthy Nabal, she is also a woman of high socioeconomic status. Whether David married her because he was attracted to her, or as an astute political move, or both is unclear

Abigail and David’s second wife, Ahinoam the Jezreelite, accompany David and his war band as they seek refuge in Philistine territory. While David and his men are encamped near Jezreel, they are captured by Amalekites who raided the town of Ziglak and carried off the women and children. David led the pursuit, and they were subsequently rescued. Both wives then settle with David in Hebron, where Abigail gives birth to David’s second son, Chileab (also called Daniel).

Abigail is also listed as one of the seven Jewish women prophets, the other six being Miriam, Deborah, Hannah, Sarah, Huldah,and Esther. In terms of her moral character, Abraham Kuyper argues that Abigail’s conduct indicates “a most appealing character and unwavering faith,”[10] but Alice Bach regards her as subversive
