Chapter-a-Day Exodus 18

Moses’ father-in-law said, "This is no way to go about it. You’ll burn out, and the people right along with you. This is way too much for you—you can’t do this alone. Exodus 18:17 (TM)

Everyone needs a mentor. I know people who have multiple mentors in different areas of their lives. A person might have a financial mentor, a spiritual mentor, a physical training mentor, etc. The idea is simple and it is ancient. As successful as Moses had been, he needed the wisdom of his father-in-law, Jethro, to objectively view Moses organization and offer a crucial piece of advice. We benefit from the knowledge and experience of those who have gone before us and know the road ahead.

I’m blessed to look back at several men and women who have been "Jethro" for me. How about you?

  1. 17-23 Moses’ father-in-law said, “This is no way to go about it. You’ll burn out, and the people right along with you. This is way too much for you—you can’t do this alone. Now listen to me. Let me tell you how to do this so that God will be in this with you.
    Tonight was our last small group meeting for the year. We have two more youth group meetings for the year. We have protected and observed how to do these things without burning out. God has convinced us that something needs to change next year. We discussed next year with small group and are well on our way to changing things. We have been blessed with a young couple who would like to help with youth group next year. God is faithful! We should be able to have more family time next year and have help with the youth. Thanks Jesus!!!
