Rahab: Daring and Defiant (Joshua 2)
Daring, defiant, and unrefined. All terms that could describe Rahab. Her profession was the only one available for a single woman in 1400 BC. And yet God still used her to help his people. Her faith was raw and unrefined but it was real. She is not just one listed in the genealogy of Jesus, she is considered by the writer to the Hebrews as a hero of the faith (Hebrews 11:31). Consider what we can learn by this woman that while eschewed by others was chosen by God to show us the power of simple, unrefined faith.

    Tamar: Forgotten and Desperate (Genesis 38; Matthew 1:3)
    Forgotten. If you have ever felt forgotten and neglected, then you can begin to understand Tamar. But there is more to her story. The covenant hung in the balance. Judah's sons are men of evil and sin and God takes both their lives. Tamar is forgotten and takes action in to her own hands. It is unorthodox, unwise, and ill advised. But in his grace, God sometimes works through the forgotten and the desperate.
