Read: Exodus 1:15-22; Proverbs 11:17-18; Isaiah 3:10-11
Reflect: We are right to fear God. Shiphrah and Puah fear God more than they fear Pharoah, and God rewards them. Throughout scripture, God rewards the righteous and punishes the wicked. Think of a time in your life when you did the right thing—perhaps when it was scary or difficult. Have you seen God at work in your life as a result? How were you rewarded? Was the reward tangible or spiritual or both?

Recite the Week's Verse: Isaiah 41:13 For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, “Do not fear; I will help you.”
Pray: Gracious Lord, Help me grow in courage and faith so that my fear does not stop me from doing what is right in your eyes. Amen.
