Women’s heart of God

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.

1 Peter 3:18

Women are often loyal to, suffer for and care about others more than themselves.

They fiercely defend and protect the men and children in their lives more than their own selves. This is one of the clearest representations of God’s character visible in our time.

He didn’t spare His Son but gave Him up for us all.

Breastfeeding him is a natural outpouring of that self-sacrificial womanly love.

“Love was compressed for all history in that lonely figure on the cross, who said that he could call down angels at any moment on a rescue mission, but chose not to—because of us. At Calvary, God accepted his own unbreakable terms of justice” (Philip Yancey, from Where Is God When It Hurts?)
