Baby Moses in the Bullrushes
Once there was a wicked king who commanded that all baby boys were to be killed! What a terrible law! In Exodus 1:1 through Exodus 2:10, we see one mom who couldn’t do it! So, she prayed and prayed and prayed. God showed her what to do – although it really didn’t make a lot of sense. She put her beloved little son, Moses, in a waterproofed basket and hid him in the tall reeds along the river. There to her amazement, the wicked king’s daughter came walking with her servants. She found tiny little Moses and was delighted! She took the baby home and raised him in the king’s palace as if he were her very own son! Instead of being killed, Moses was raised as a prince!
