Using the Least Likely

Rahab the prostitute might have been the least likely person to help God’s people. Prostitution was not something that the Hebrew people practiced and did not line up with God’s sexual ethics in the Law. The movie Schindler’s List (directed by Steven Spielberg [Universal Pictures, 1993]) presents another story where a stingy German businessman helped save the lives of hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust. These are examples of God using the least likely to bring about his will.
