When Rebekah agrees to leave home to marry Isaac, her family sends her off, along with her nurse. This suggests Rebekah may be quite young at the time and still in need of guidance. We later learn the nurse’s name is Deborah, but we know nothing more about her or what she does.
However, the Bible does mention Deborah’s death. We don’t know why, but it must have been important for God to note her passing in his written Word.
Whether our life is celebrated, receives a mere footnote in history, or is soon forgotten, what we do is important to God.
Do we do things to get the world’s attention or is God’s opinion what matters most?
