While reading Moses' story in Exodus, as part of my Bible in 90 Days Challenge, I came upon this verse and it stuck with me.
I, being a mom and all, immediately thought of my children. How, at the young age of three, my daugher already looks after her younger brother. Her love for him already shows...and it is amazing!
A brother/sister relationship is one of the greatest gifts God has given to us. We have a built-in best friend!
When we are younger, we always have someone to play with...whether we like each other that day or not!
Through our teen years, we have someone to tell our secrets to and blab about who we love this week!
As we become adults, we have someone to experience marriage and parenthood with. We go on this life journey together as siblings!
I am blessed with having a sister and I am so thankful that my children are blessed with each other as well!
Moses's sister loved him. The story goes on to say how she asked Pharaoh's daughter if she wanted her to "go and get one of the Hebrew women to nurse the baby for you?" Ex.2:7 That Hebrew women was her mother...Moses' mother!
Isn't God amazing at how he works? He has a plan for each and everyone of us. He will never leave us nor forsake us! Hebrews 13:5
Just like the short story of Moses' sister and her love for him, we see God's plan. God's plan for Moses was far greater than Pharaoh's law. And with the love of Moses' sister, that plan came to be! A pure example of that agape love!
This is one of my favorite pictures of my kids! It was taken about a year ago. I love the look of love on my daughters face as she looks upon her little brother! This is one of those "priceless" photos!
P.S. What do you think of the new blog design? It is still a "work in progress" but not looking too bad!Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10
