I love this unnamed wise woman who just makes it happen in verses 14-22. We hardly know anything about her, but she gives us a lot to think about.
She’s somehow risen to authority in a time and a place where women didn’t really do that. She’s trusted by the people in her town and puts their well-being first.
She is wise; she decides to make one swift, violent move to avoid massive violence and bloodshed. Sometimes you need to make a drastic move to weed out evil.
Is there something in your life that poses a threat to the rest of it? A habit? A person? A belonging?
Pray about this. Ask God to expose anything in your life you need to hand over, in order to protect yourself and the safety of your soul.
