UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
People get accustomed to living with the injustices that prevail in society. What doe it take to address injustice? God called Moses to address injustice and empowered him with the knowledge of God’s identity, purpose, and presence.
Every nation will always be in need of good leaders to help set the pace for progress. One need not be famous in order to lead well. When each of us accepts the challenge to lead in our own niche, the world will become a better place in which to live.
Oh LORD, thank you for the leaders of the past and of the present and future. Let us not complain about the current leaders, but help us to discover our own gifts and to use them to your glory. Lord, make us instruments and use us as you will. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
