Reading: Exodus 1: 8- 2:10 (Click to read text)
If you want to learn about good leadership, I would say don't look at Pharaoh! Feeling threatened, he told the midwives to kill all the male babies. Instead of looking for other solutions, he simply tries to eliminate his "problem."
Where is God in all of this? In the woman, who defying the odds, takes her newborn son to the river and put him in a basket. Pharaoh's daughter finds the child and takes him as her own. The child, Moses, grows up to be a man of God, challenging Pharaoh and helping the Israelites get out of their bondage.
When are the moments in our lives when we challenge authority, knowing that God is leading us in that direction? When are the times when we know God is telling us to listen to those in power and do what we are told? What leaders do you look up, who perhaps lead with more compassion that Pharaoh? --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
