Exodus 2:11-3:22

I will probably come back to Mike question/thought of the day this evening, but know I need to address something I’ve just seen in the text, two things, that I’ve never considered before.

Moses, knowing he was adopted, seeing the life he had led as an adopted son of Pharaoh’s daughter, and seeing the life of his biological people, chose to identify with slaves although he had not completely thrown off the comforts of being raised in the household of Pharaoh. Got used his act of murder to begin the removal of his identification to the palace and his privilege, He kicked him out of the “boat.” Moses also must have understood or knew his purpose as Israel’s deliver; however, he didn’t have a clue on how that was to be achieved.

I think many of us have some inkling, some vision, of what our purpose is; however, because we don’t know how that is to be fulfilled, we go off and do our own thing and mess up royally. We then don’t set goals (see Jan. 24th) because we are afraid to mess up again. Based on Moses’ story we see that God can have us go at least forty years to get the Egypt out of us although we are out of Egypt.

I also now think that Moses’ reluctance to go back to Egypt and lead his people out was not based on some self-perceived speech impediment, but based on his knowledge that he was a murderer. Even after forty years, people have long memories and I’m sure if someone in the palace committed murder, even if the people around at the time die off, the records would clearly record that even. After all inquiring minds want to know. People love to see the might fall. Hmmm!

Grace and peace,

Romances that began in the wells

Genesis 24:12-25 (Abraham's old servant met Rebekah for Issac)
Genesis 29:9-12 (Jacob met Rachel)
Exodus 2:16-22 (Moses met Reuel father of Zipporah)

It seems that romances were likely to happen in the wells!

I do think about the passion and life/death at the cross of Jesus often and not just during Easter or the resurrection week. I teach at a Christian school and we do bible stories each day of the week and after each section we go over, which may take a week or a couple of weeks it asks for you to commit your life to Jesus if you haven't already and it is at those times I meditate on the LOrd and what He has done for us at times, or a special song, like "Above All" and it reminds me definitely of what our precious Saviour has done for us! Nothing, but the blood, nothing but the blood of Jesus! Thank You Jesus for the blood shed for me!
