really liked it

I like this take on what happened to Moses and his family. As a religious person who believes that God listens to my prayers and expects me to obey when he gives me an answer, this story hits home. As Moses gets his "assignment" from I think, "holy cow I have to be careful what I pray for." I'm grateful for my little part in this world. (LITTLE)

As Moses talks to his brother Aaron after he comes down from the mount and sees the mess he's made, I feel Moses was patient and a good teacher. He helped Aaron sift through the self hating emotions to get to the real sin. Moses showed Aaron God's hand in his life. Aaron couldn't see it due to his insecurities and jealousy. In my opinion you have to train your eye to see Gods hand, and when you do life is more sweet. My favorite part was when Moses told Aaron that God did hear his prayers. "He heard you. He was waiting for you to say, Make of me whatever you need me to be. You didn't want to serve the Lord, you wanted him to serve you."
