His mother hid him in a basket (a papyrus boat) and placed it in the Nile River, hoping his life would be spared. Pharaoh’s daughter found him and drew him out of the water, giving him the name Moses. Moses saw that, while hehad comfort in the palace, life for his people grew worse and worse. He wanted to help them (Acts 7:25). One day he killed an Egyptian (Exodus 2:11-15). This made him a fugitive. He fled to the land of Midian. Some 40 years later, we find him taking care of sheep there when today’s text begins. God appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Though the bush was on fire, it did not burn up.

Connect the Testaments: A Daily Devotional

November 3 Love and Commitment: Not Always Synonymous1 Kings 3:1–4:34; Mark 3:1–3:35; Proverbs 1:13–19
Loving God and living fully for Him are not necessarily synonymous. If I love someone, does that mean I always show untainted respect and unfailing loyalty? Love should command complete devotion and commitment—but our lives are rarely as pure as they should be.
Like his father, David, Solomon acted out of passion and love, but his commitment and respect for Yahweh faltered at the same time: “Solomon intermarried with … the daughter of Pharaoh and brought her to the city of David … Solomon loved Yahweh, by walking in the statutes of David his father; only he was sacrificing and offering incense on the high places” (1 Kgs 3:1, 3).
Solomon didn’t marry Pharaoh’s daughter because he needed Egypt’s protection. Egypt, Israel’s ancient enemy, had enslaved God’s people once before, but it was not an imminent threat. Worse, Solomon committed himself to Pharaoh, an ally who viewed himself as a…
