Lydia

Lydia listened,
A dealer in purple cloth
And worshipper of God –
Upon hearing Paul’s message
Lord Jesus opened her heart

written in response to today’s prompt at The Daily Post, and inspired by Acts 16:!4

  1. I was just reading about Lydia in a commentary on the Bible. They said she and Paul’s jailer were his first converts in that city. Apparently, she was very rich. They said the reason there were only women at the place of prayer is that the Jews had been banished from there at the time.
