Exodus 4:24 – In which, God almost kills Moses

One of the passages in the scripture that I find baffling is in Exodus 4:24:

“At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met Mosest and was about to kill him.” (NIV)

This is as Moses was on his way to Egypt after meeting God at the burning bush and being sent to return to Egypt to tell Pharoah to let God‘s people go.

What do you make of this short verse?

If I recall it was because of his failure to do a circumcision, maybe on his son. If in fact I am recalling right, then the principle is very important for modern leaders – particularly, if we are choosing to lead and establish culture, morality, etc in ways that are not in line with Kingdom values, God essentially has no use for us.

We will discuss this tonight at small group! Thanks for this good bit for our D3 group…
