Fierce. Brave. Determined.
Sometimes in life, we’re dealt a poor hand. And things go from bad to worse. Such was Tamar’s life. Her first husband died due to his wickedness. Her second not long after. To make matters worse, her father-in-law refused to fulfill an important promise to her, which left her widowed, childless, and alone.
To make a long, complicated story short, Tamar took action into her own hands and made a bold move to get justice. While her actions cannot be called “admirable,” her grit and determination are. Moreover, her life is a testament of the astounding grace of God in redeeming her story and allowing her to be in the lineage of Jesus.
