Moses is a central figure in the continuation of God’s restoration plan, but his beginnings were aided by the bravery and courage of five different women. These five women (the two midwives, his mother and sister and even Pharaoh’s own daughter) showed faithfulness and courage in the face of opposition. The Hebrew women showed total commitment to God, they feared God more than the oppressive and violent rule they were under and Pharaoh’s daughter chose compassion, going against the very law that her father had instigated. Moses’ beginnings were birthed out of courage and faithfulness and in turn he (and these women) experienced the faithfulness of God in their lives. For us, we don’t operate on the basis of exchange – if I am faithful then God is faithful. No, the faithfulness of God will always outstrip any faithfulness of ours! However, the conviction and commitment that these women demonstrated in the face of opposition is a key lesson for us, leaning into our God-given calling and exercising our God-given responsibility will require great courage.
