Welcome and thanks for reading.

Continuing from last week, the King of Egypt was so threatened by the increased number of Israelites that he gave
the following order:  Exodus 1:22  “Every boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.”

One Israelite boy was born but his mother hid him.  When the mother could no longer hide him, she made a
basket out of tar and pitch.  She placed the basket with the child in the reeds of the Nile river.

The Pharaoh’s daughter found the Israelite boy and secretly raised the child as her own.  He became part of the royal
family.  She named him Moses.

Exodus 2:11-12  One day, after Moses had grown up, he went out to where his people (Israelites) were and watch-
ed them at their hard labor.  He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people.  Glancing this way and
that and seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.

Exodus 2:15  When Pharaoh heard of this, he tried to kill Moses, but Moses fled from Pharaoh and went to live in
Midian, where he sat down by a well.

Next week, God calls Moses to return to Egypt.  He will be Gods vessel to free the Israelite slaves.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
