    Chapter 15 - Giving the Commission

    Forty years passed by after that first ill-advised attempt, when the Egyptian was killed, before the Lord was ready to deliver His people by the hand of Moses. It took that length of time to fit Moses for the important work. “He was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians,” 1Acts 7:22. but he needed to learn in its place the wisdom that comes from above. (See James 3:17, 18.) We read of Moses, at a later period of his life, that he was meek above all other men; but that was not his natural disposition. An education at court is not calculated to develop the quality of meekness. From the way in which Moses at the first proceeded to settle the labour troubles of his people, we see that he was impulsive and arbitrary. The blow closely followed the word. But the man who should lead the children of Abraham into the promised inheritance must have very different characteristics.EVCO 174.1
