Unfortunately, in today’s society women and girls are still seen as inferior to men and boys. From the corporate offices in the U.S. to the schools in Iraq, women and girls have an unfair disadvantage: They are females.

While in some cultures and countries women are seen as inferior objects, in the eyes of our Lord and Savior we are equal. 1 Corinthians 1:3-9 says that, “For in him you have been enriched in every way…. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.” As children of the Lord, women and men are seen as one people united in our faith.

When Christ was born he was the savior for all people, not just men and not just for women. We have all been given the gift of enrichment. So every time you feel less than someone else, remember we are all God’s children.
