Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Exodus 2:5-6

Monday, August 15, 2011 – Proper 16 & Ordinary 21, Year A

The lectionary texts for this week include: Exodus 1:8-2:10; Psalm 124; Romans 12:1-8 and Matthew 16:13-20. Alternate texts include Isaiah 51:1-6 and Psalm 138.

Exodus 2:5-6The daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, while her attendants walked beside the river. She saw the basket [containing baby Moses] among the reeds and sent her maid to bring it. When she opened it, she saw the child. He was crying, and she took pity on him, “This must be one of the Hebrews’ children,” she said.

Moses’ mother had hid him from Pharaoh, and by letting Pharaoh’s daughter find him, she saved his life. I would venture to guess that each of us has at least one person in our life whose positive influence on us was significant. Pray for that person today.

Prayer: Protector God, today we ask a special blessing for those people whose lives have touched us in important ways. AMEN.
