Exodus 2:1-4 New International Version (NIV)
The Birth of Moses
2 Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman, 2 and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him for three months. 3 But when she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with tar and pitch. Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile. 4 His sister stood at a distance to see what would happen to him.
Mose’s mother knew how wrong it would be to destroy her child. But there was little she could do to change the new law of Pharaoh. She chose to hide the child and later paced him in a basket. God used her courageous act to place her son in the house of Pharaoh. Moses was the Hebrew of his choice who would lead his people out of slavery. Do you sometimes feel surrounded by evil and frustrated about how little you can do about it? When faced with evil, look for ways to act against it. Trust God to use your effort, however small it seems to you, in the war against evil.
