Exodus for Lent: Week 3, Tuesday

Read: Exodus 12:29-39


Reflect: To our modern minds, the death of the firstborn seems barbaric, yet the old Pharaoh had ordered all the Israelite baby boys murdered. Will this Pharaoh listen to less than an equally violent exercise of God’s power? It seems not. The people are let go, with gold and riches and unleavened bread, with a sense of urgency. Have you ever seen an opening out of trouble and taken it? What made you trust that leaving was the right thing to do?


Write: Here in the comments or privately


Recite: Psalm 9:9-10 The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.


Pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for never giving up on me. Soften my heart that I may trust in you and never be separated from your love. Amen
