Pharaoh was the most powerful man on earth.
He led the greatest civilization the world had seen.
He ruled an empire.
He conquered his enemies.
His people worshiped him as a god.
But we don’t know his name.
We have some guesses. Some deductions.
But we don’t know.
Shiphrah and Puah were peasants at best.
Slaves more accurately.
They delivered babies.
Pharaoh commanded them to kill the male Hebrew children.
But Pharaoh wasn’t their god.
We know their names.
We know the risk they took.
We know their fear of God.
You see, it is not our position, nor our wealth.
It is not our education or our accomplishments.
What matters, what sets us apart is our fear of God.
