Nameless Young Girl

Naaman, 2 Kings 5, Naaman's slave girl, Naaman's healing
I love to read a Bible passage and see something I've never seen before. 

Reading about Naaman's healing (2 Kings 5:1-15), I noticed something remarkable. 

A young slave girl taken captive against her will ... 

Serving those who had probably killed and kidnapped others of her people ... 

Away from home and family. 

But she was not away from faith in the True and Living God.

She forgave her captors and encouraged her leprous master, Naaman, to seek healing from God. 

God healed him, and Naaman proclaimed: "I know at last there is no God in all the world except in Israel" (2 Kings 5:15). 

We don't even know this young girl's name, but we know it is written in the Book of Life perhaps next to Naaman's. And we know she'll receive a crown in heaven for her faithfulness in the midst of adversity. 

My prayer is that, no matter what happens, I might have faith like this young girl. How about you?

This is such a wonderful passage to study, so I encourage you to check out today's Bite Size Bible Study.
