The Jews were crying out to God for a deliverer; and the answer to their prayer would come in a basket, carrying a baby, floating down the Nile. The Pharaoh thought the boys were the threat when the women were the ones who saved Israel and preserved and protected the boys. A baby’s tears were God’s first weapon in His war against Egypt.
- Moses was taken to the Palace of the Pharaoh of Egypt.
- God is far more interested in character than charisma.
- Moses knew that pleasure was fleeting, so he walked away from it!
- Moses was being groomed to become the next Pharaoh of Egypt.
- Moses was beginning to understand his destiny.
- It’s not enough to merely do the right thing.
- We must do the right thing in the right way at the right time!
Egypt was the most powerful nation on earth at this time.
To be “taught the wisdom of the Egyptians” meant Moses would have been taught in military tactics, art, music, painting, philosophy, law, and their religion. Moses figured the worst God had to offer was better than the best the world had to offer. Moses is the classic example of what happens when impulsiveness reigns. Moses was called to be a leader, but his timing was way off. Moses failed forward.
