What is it that makes a person wise? Intellect? Upbringing? Education opportunities? Solomon the ‘wise’ brought everything in perspective along with another Old Testament Saint called Job (See Job 28:12-28 ). It all returns back to the Fear of the Lord. That’s where wisdom begins. Think about it. The ‘Owner’s Manual’ for life is always dependent on the designer and maker of the merchandise. You can choose to disrespect and misuse the merchandise and it will only lead to its ruin. Or, you can live according to the design out of appreciation of the one who put it all together. The ‘wise move’ is to respect and honor the Owner and stick to the Owner’s Manual.

Strong beginnings are sometimes overrated. Obviously, a strong start matters, but life is about how you finish. As we conclude this series on the life of Moses, it’s worth taking a few minutes to review his life. The best short summary of Moses’ life is given in Hebrews 11:23-29 , which is commonly known as the “Hall of Fame of Faith.” He didn’t end in disgrace, but he certainly didn’t finish the way he hoped. Once again, it’s a reminder that God used Moses in extraordinary ways not because Moses was so extraordinary, not because God is.

God had promised Moses way back at the burning bush, when he was expressing all kinds of self-doubt, that when he led the people out of Egypt, he would return and worship God on this mountain. (Exodus 3: I2). I’m sure Moses, as he reflected back on his journey over the years, remembered God’s faithfulness to His promises and the sign being fulfilled as he went up onto Mount Sinai to meet God and receive instructions for the people.

Grumbling Heart or Grateful Heart… We all have the choice. The Israelites were off from Elim with its twelve springs and seventy palms… an OASIS for the moment. But God would cause them to trust Him once again as they set out into the wilderness. Whether it was the crossing of the Red Sea or the deliverance from the plagues or the bitter waters at Marah made sweet, Israel had ample evidence to trust that God would provide. But when the going got tough, the grumbling came out. It is the same for us today. We grumble about slow WI-FI, the weather, waiting in take-out lines, and a host of other things that really don’t matter that much.
