Grateful, nurturing women

“After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.”

– Luke 8:1-3

NIV Study Bible note on verse 3: helping to support them. Jesus and his disciples did not provide for themselves by miracles but were supported by the service and means of such grateful people as these women.

My observations:
Courageous women give of themselves to the men they love. It struck me how these women, despite the limited means to which they must have had access as first century women, were willing to sacrifice for their Lord, a man who already owned everything.

Women who are grateful for the men in their lives naturally draw of themselves to nurture their men.
