What can you say about Jochebed?

Well, the woman mentioned twice by name in the scriptures (Exodus 6:20, Numbers 26:59) was born in Egypt and bore three children, who grew up to become some spiritually heavy-hitters as well. She made tough choices, she knew the providence of God and her faith must have been a topic mentioned at her funeral (Exodus 2:1-9, Hebrews 11:23).

This is why Jochebed stands as an example to every woman who knows the value of fearing God despite the feelings of the culture that surrounds her. EA

Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30)
