MIRIAM: A FAITHFUL WATCHMAN
TEXT: EXODUS 2:1-8
Key Verse: “And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him” (Exodus 2:4).
During the time that Moses was born, the reigning king decided to kill every male child born by the Israelites, so as to diminish the strength of the children of Israel and curtail their growth. It was during this period that Moses was born. Moses was kept by his parents for three months, after which they decided to keep him by the river, since it was now too risky to keep him at home. Then, someone was needed to watch over baby Moses to see what will become of him.
The faithful watchman was Miriam. Although she was still a very young girl, but she was given this great responsibility. She was found faithful. She watched without distractions, she watched with devotion, with dedication, with a mother’s heart and with boldness.
Unlike the story in the book of kings, when a servant was asked to watch over someone committed to his hand but he came with the excuse of being busy here and there. Miriam was committed and obedient to the task she was given, you should desire this virtue also. Whatever is worth doing at all, is worth doing well. Give your best in all you do, especially in preaching the gospel to sinners, and God will bless you.
Prayer: Dear Lord, make me a faithful watchman to my younger ones and the sinners around me.
