THE VALUES OF A “PHARAOH’S DAUGHTER”
With courage, Pharaoh’s Daughter seized the moment presented to her. She lived in a time of great cruelty toward children. In that historic moment, she acted with courage. She made a decision to act and pulled a child from death to destiny. He went on to become one of the greatest leaders of all time. Moses comes from the Hebrew word Mashah that means “to pull out” or to “rescue”. In courage, she rescued him, and we strive to show that same courage in our times.
Pharaoh’s Daughter lived her life in extreme privilege. She must have had enormous conviction because she risked every thing that day to save the child. She risked her life of privilege. She risked safety, comfort and wealth. She was convicted that the plight of children was wrong. She was convicted to make a difference. Pharaoh’s Daughter knew that she was called to save a life. And by doing so, she changed the future of the world. We hope to live our lives with that same conviction.
Pharaoh’s Daughter is one of the great heroines of history and we don’t even know her name. But her name does not matter because it was her character that changed everything. People may not speak our names, but they will speak of a time in history when women of courage, conviction and character showed a love so great that it changed a child’s life, and the world.
We live a time of great risk to children. Once again, children worldwide are being “floated in the river” of orphanages, trafficking and foster care.
God had a divine plan then to use a woman of courage to save history. And He has one now. You are his royal princess. You are called for this time in history, entrusted with the destiny of a child.
You have courage, conviction and character.
