Numbers 12:3 says this:
Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth.
What a title, the meekest man on earth. It’s no wonder that He was chosen to lead the people. Could you imagine a proud, power hungry man leading the people out of Egypt? He would have established himself as king and turned the people away from God permanently. But Moses was humble, he was not interested in power and fame, at least, not his own power and fame. Moses was concerned about God’s power and God’s fame. He led the people of Israel for the glory of God alone.
Imagine if we lived that way, concerned with God’s glory going before anything else. How would that change our families, our jobs, and our friendships? Let us pray that God would make us like Moses give us a spirit of meekness, that we might live in such a way that our lives point away from ourselves and toward God. Let us be as 2 Corinthians 3 says, mirrors beholding the image of God for all to see.
