Leadership Lessons from the Life of Moses
Take a Stand
Moses is raised in Pharaoh’s palace. He is a prince of Egypt. Because he was raised but his Hebrew mother and played with his Hebrew siblings, he knew who he was. He went out to visit his brethren, he sees slave-masters beating his fellow Israelites. His illusions are shattered. He knows all is not right with the world.
He decides he cannot remain who he was. He needs to challenge slavery. He needs to take a stand against injustice.
This is the first major test of Moses’ leadership.
