‘And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a girl named Rhoda came to answer. When she recognized Peter’s voice, because of her gladness she did not open the gate, but ran in…’
Seriously, we should listen to children when they speak. Here is a young girl whose heart is about to burst with joy. She cannot wait to tell the good news of Peter’s deliverance. Yes, it is funny that Peter went through all he did, to then, be left outside knocking. But who can be angry with Rhoda? She delights in the answered prayers of the church. We should hope that here are many little maidens like her among us.
