Read: Exodus 18
Reflect: Jethro comes to faith in the Lord with fresh eyes. He sees that Moses must focus on representing the people before God and let others who are worthy and honest bear part of the burden. Community is a blessing from God we sometimes forget. Have you taken on too much? Can you ask a friend to be your Jethro, to help you see where your focus should be? How can you delegate minor tasks to keep your focus where it should be?

Recite: The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26
Pray: Generous Lord, You shower me in blessings each and every day. Help me remember those blessings in the busyness of life. Amen.
