Reading: Exodus 12: 1-14 (Click to read text)
Reflection: These past few weeks, it's been fun to re-read the story of Moses. Here, we read about how God gave Moses and Aaron instructions on how to "observe" the first passover.
I wonder how Moses and Aaron felt after receiving these instructions. Do you think they said, "Okay, God. We'll do it." Or, do you think they wondered what was going on. This seemed strange. Maybe they thought, "Okay, God. We'll do it, but reluctantly. What are you really up to here?"
I wonder how often we answer God's call in that way. Are we willing participants in what God is asking us to do? Or, do we go kicking and screaming, with God dragging us all the way.
As we know, the passover story turned out well for Moses and Aaron when they obeyed God and did what they were told. How much better do you think our lives would be if we did the same thing? --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
