Rahab was a harlot, a prostitute, a whore, unworthy, and the list could go on.
Does anyone think any less of her? Even God decided that Rahab the harlot would join the lineage of his son Jesus. Rahab married Salmon, who has been thought to be an Israelite spy, maybe even the very one she helped hide when the spies came into
. Salmon was a man of God, who worshiped and fought for God. Have we forgotten that God used a harlot to be save his men? That if it had not been for her courage and strength, who knew how long it would take for the Israelites to defeat Jericho ?! Jericho
No Rahab wasn’t perfect, she sinned. Though the one thing each person forgets is that every sin is the same to God, when anyone of us sins just once it pulls us away from Him. There is no mild sin, no worst ever sin, there is only sin. And when one of us sins, it severs our closeness to God. It makes us imperfect.
Sin is sin. Let us hate the sin and love the sinner. Just as God loves us.
