Advent Day 8

Exodus 1:1 ‐ 2:10

When she opened it, she saw the child. He was crying, and she took pity on him. “This must be one of the Hebrews’ children,” she said.

When the Israelites came into Egypt, they multiplied and grew strong. Pharaoh was afraid the Israelites were becoming so numerous that they would organize and threaten his kingdom, so he enslaved them. But the Israelites still multiplied, so Pharaoh ordered all Hebrew boys killed. When Moses was born his mother hid him and he was found by Pharaoh’s daughter. She took him as her son, thereby placing Moses in the house of Pharaoh.

God, we pray that you would use our lives, as you did Moses’ life, to further your plans. Amen.
