Blood. Frogs. Lice. Flies.
The ten plagues of Egypt are one of the most famous stories in the Bible, but often we think they belong way back there, in long-ago buried history.
But I don’t think so. I think those things that plagued Pharaoh back then still plague us as women today. And in this 4-part series, we look at how these plagues relate to us!
First, we’ll look at the plague of the blood, and how if our foundation in life isn’t right, it’s going to poison everything!
In part 2, we turn to the bothersome plagues: frogs, lice and flies. They represent the things in your life that drive you crazy, but don’t actually hurt or kill you. They just make you miserable! In this funny talk, we’ll look at the pressures we modern women put on ourselves to fit in and be perfect, and how this can undermine God’s purpose for our lives.
In part 3, we look at what happens when your security crumbles. Pharaoh saw his crops and animals die. In our lives, we sometimes see the things that we base our security on–like money or our health–disappear, too. Let’s make sure we’re counting on God, and not on things in this earth!
And then finally, in part 4, we turn to the hard plagues: darkness and death. How can we trust when life is going really badly? What do we do when we can’t see ahead? As Sheila shares her story of loss, she also gives hope of what heaven will be like. This last talk will make you cry, but it will also encourage you as to the blessings God has in store for us!
Each talk is approximately 40-45 minutes long, and the set can be used for a month-long women’s Bible study.
