Today is International Women's Day. The Bible is often criticised for its treatment of women. I think a lot of that comes from the culture of the time the Bible was written. If you read Proverbs 31 you see a woman who is strong, wise, generous, hardworking, capable, creative and generous. Through the ages, women have been judged by their outward beauty, but it's what's on the inside that counts. Verse 30 says,
Grace and beauty can fool you, but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised.
