15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, 16 “When you are helping the Hebrew women during childbirth on the delivery stool, if you see that the baby is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” 17 

The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live. – Exodus 1:15-16

 

Midwives Shiphrah and Puah feared God. In other words, these two wonderful women were filled with awe and deep love for the Lord. Their love for God led them to courageously oppose Pharaoh’s direct order to murder every baby boy they helped deliver. Our Faith in Jesus fills us with Christ’s courage. Whenever the world asks you to sacrifice your integrity and abandon your principals, Jesus will always give you the courage to faithfully live out God’s love in the world.

 

Affectionately,
