Passage: Exodus 2:23-4:16
Reflection: This is a longer reading today, mostly because Moses keeps coming up with reasons why God should choose someone else to free Israel! This story of call and response shows just how far God is willing to go to make sure that we are able to carry out the mission He wants to give us. God doesn’t set us up for failure!
Questions for Reflection:
1. The best phrase I can come up with to describe the relationship that Moses had with God is brutal honesty. Moses holds nothing back from God- his hopes, his fears, his worries, his frustrations, his joys- nothing is off limits when Moses and God talk to each other, and it all started at the burning bush. How would you describe your relationship with God? How was it when you first started ministry?
2. Moses was in the middle of his second career when God called him. What was going on in your life when you felt God calling you to ministry?
3. What do you make of Moses’s reaction to God’s call at the burning bush? Is he making excuses, or is he just honest with who he is and what his limitations are? Are you as honest with yourself when you pray?
Tomorrow, we’re going to look at Peter’s story. See you then!
