On Monday of VCS, we heard God promise Moses,
“I will take you as my people, and I will be your God. You shall know that I am the LORD your God, who has freed you from the burdens of the Egyptians…” (Ex. 6:7). We saw that, “Moses told this to the Israelites; but they would not listen to Moses, because of their broken spirit and their cruel slavery” (Ex. 6:9).
Moses and Aaron confronted Pharaoh with a message from the LORD:
How did Pharaoh respond?
Pharaoh is one hard-hearted king. “Make bricks!” he said.
Even after he saw Moses’ staff turn into a snake, his answer remained, “make bricks!” And so we did.
We also worked hard to fill the Pharaoh’s storehouses.
