Mistaken Identity

And they said, An Egyptian delivered us.
An Egyptian? Are you kidding? Moses was a Jew, an Israelite, but here he is mistaken for an Egyptian. He does not worry about correcting the mistake of these women. He is simply glad to be obedient without defending his own self-image - his own reputation. John the Baptist said about Jesus: “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Sometimes we use up so much energy defending our reputation that we have none left for serving God’s people.
