Getting out of the rut

Moses lived a few hundred years after Joseph, the guy who saved the children of Israel from starvation by bringing them to Egypt. The move to the land of plenty was a glorious salvation.

By time Moses was born, the children of Israel became lazy followers. They expected the leader, Pharaoh, to feed them. They basically looked to person, instead of Principle, God, for their answers and guidance. Bottom line: the children of Israel became slaves.

Moses was guided by God to lead the children of Israel out of bondage. Moses wasn’t directed to convince the children of Israel they needed to return to the days when they moved to Egypt, saved. Moses didn’t try to force the children of Israel to be like in the glorious olden days.

Moses coaxed the children of Israel to get their minds moving in a spiritual direction. Moses persuaded the children of Israel to conquer their apathy and conservatism and manifest newness.

It took 40 years.

The children of Israel again were saved, only to what? Fall back into the rut of material living, idolatry, and adultery. When will we learn? Answering that question isn’t as important as to keep moving forward to divine Spirit.


At home with the family, at work with a boss, in church with members, we can look for our answers from God. Don’t try to keep something the same. Don’t fall into a rut no matter how comfortable. We can expect newness.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “Let us feel the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into newness of life and recognizing no human or material power as able to destroy. Let us rejoice that we are open to the divine “governing authorities.”[1] Such is the true Science of being. Any other theory of Life, or God, is delusive and mythological.”


[1] Rom. 13:1
