Reading: Exodus 33: 12-23 (Click to read text)
Reflection: Isn't it a little unsettling when God tells Moses, "You cannot see my face, for no one shall see me and live."? It brings back one of the final scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Very scary. But actually, Moses at first requests, "Teach me your ways so I may know you." In the end, Moses sees all the Glory of God pass by while in a cleft in a rock and covered by God's hand. He could see all the glory but could only catch a glimpse of God's back. Did Moses get what he asked for?
That was enough for Moses and is enough for us. Look for and see God's glory! It is passing in front of us all the time and, if we are watching, we will surely get a glimpse of God. Then we can also say, "Teach me your (glorious) ways so I may know you." --Ruth Gates, Camp Mount Luther Family Camper
