Moses & his Mama

When reading Exodus 2, I found it interesting that Moses was able to be around his biological mother, even in the midst of the Egyptians killing killing Hebrew children.
When Moses’ mother puts him into a basket in the river bank, his sister stands on the shore. (Exodus 2:4). The daughter of Pharaoh sees the basket, and one of her servants picks it up. Pharaoh’s daughter has pity on the baby, knowing it was a Hebrew child. Moses’ sister says, “Shall I go and call a nurse from the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?” With the daughter of Pharaoh’s permission, Moses’ sister runs and gets their mom, who is then told “Take this child away and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages.”
I found it so interesting that, in God’s providence, Moses’ family is able to be with him as he grows up, largely because of the boldness of his older sister to speak to Pharaoh’s daughter. When Moses is grown up, his mother brings him “to Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son.” (Exodus 2:10).

In Exodus 1:12 It’s also interesting that similar to the persecuted church, the Israelites in Egypt grow the more they are oppressed.

“The blood of the martyr is the seed of the church.”
