Day 4 synopsis:

Blessed is the woman of the Word.

She will be a Word of God for others.

We’ve talked about what a beatitude is… it consists of two parts.  The first being an experience, trait, or quality.  The second half being the result or reward of the first half.

I personally equate being a “woman of the Word” to being seasoning.  Bear with me here… follow me.  What is a “woman of the Word”?  I think of it as someone who studies God’s word, listens to God’s word, ponders God’s word, reflects God’s word, and so on.  And when we do that we are different from the majority of people around us.  This reminds me of the verses in Matthew 5 about us being the “salt and light” of the earth.  We make a difference in our world because we react differently, respond differently, think differently, etc… we are the seasoning.

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.  You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:13-16

It’s no coincidence that the above verse was immediately following the Sermon on the Mount.

Blessed is the woman of the Word.

She will be a Word of God for others.
