For Sunday, August 24
Were the midwives Hebrew or Egyptian? What gave them the strength to do what they did? They did more than say that God was God, they lived it. They protected Hebrew children and families. They risked their own lives, the lives of their families. They were midwives, there to help something happen, not take it away.
Simon Peter is going to get there– in Acts he is a hero– but we’re not there yet. We’re still at the place where Peter says one thing and does another. Says something really good, but does the easy and safe.
What is the difference between one place and another? Does courage come along with spiritual maturity?
Is courage a spiritual gift?
Are we all called to be Midwives?
