The Unseen: Courage

May 31, 2023

Two Hebrew midwives Shiprah and Puah were ordered by the Pharoah to kill all of the male babies born to Hebrew women. They didn’t outright refuse the order, but they didn’t kill any of the newborn male babies either. They delivered them healthy and alive and told the king that Hebrew women have the babies too fast. They couldn’t kill them during birth, there was no time. This practice eventually led to Moses being born, the boy who grew up to be the man who led the Hebrew people to freedom. What does it mean that these women had the courage to stand up for what they believe? What things is God asking you to have courage to do?
