Bowing Low and Listening – A Note From the Omaha Pastor

A Note From the Omaha Pastor


Exodus 18:7, 24 “So Moses went out to meet his father-in-law. He bowed low and kissed him. They asked about each other’s welfare and then went into Moses’ tent….Moses listened to his father-in-law and did everything he said.”


Moses’ attitude in this passage is very encouraging.  Set the stage here: Moses is confused on the mountain with the burning bush.   Moses is commissioned by God to lead Israel, Moses confronts Pharaoh with his one request, and lastly, God uses Moses in the ultimate conflict at the Red Sea to destroy the Egyptians.  In today’s culture, that is some pretty heavy stuff.


Yet, in these two verses we see Moses’ response to his father-in-law: he bows low and listened and followed his father-in-law’s advice.


Moses’ response to Jethro reveals that Moses was a man of humility and wisdom. May that be our heart.


Building Together,
Omaha pastor, Rory
