“Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, “When you help the Hebrew women give birth, observe them as they deliver. If the child is a son, kill him, but if it’s a daughter, she may live.”
Exodus 1:15-16 HCSB
Have you ever been given orders to do something you knew was wrong? Whether being pressured by friends to go into a place you have no business being or being told to falsify accounting records, it leaves one feeling sick and angry. No matter your response, someone will not be happy. In these situations, are you more concerned about what people think of you or obeying God?
“The Hebrew midwives, however, feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt had told them; they let the boys live…So God was good to the midwives, and the people multiplied and became very numerous.”
Exodus 1:17, 20 HCSB
When faced with difficult decisions, always know God rewards obedience. 🚦
