Exodus 2:6 – Took Pity

Gen 50:1‐26; Ex 1:1‐2:10, Matt 16:13‐17:9, Ps 21:1‐13, Prov 5:1‐6

This is what stood out to me in the readings today – probably influenced by the Roe v. Wade anniversary and all the talk about abortion this week.

Exodus 2:6a When she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby was crying. She took pity on him… Matthew 17:3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him.

What could seem like a small event in the life of a baby, God used to shape eternity. I don’t know that I have ever considered the story of Moses as a baby when thinking about him being one of the two to join Jesus (he also had a death warrant when he was a baby) during his transfiguration.

It motivates me to take every opportunity to be a positive part of the future for each kid I come in contact with. Did this jump out to anyone else today?
