“That’s so they will trust that God appeared to you, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” Exodus 4:5 (The Message)
God gave Moses a hat trick of tricks to prove he was speaking on behalf of God: rod to snake, hand leprous, and water to blood. As we share good news, as we speak for justice, how do those around us know that we speak on behalf of God?
So many say so many things, claiming they are speaking for God. We speak for God when we speak on behalf of those that are oppressed. We speak for God when we give voice to the voiceless. While we have no magic tricks, those with whom and for whom we speak will know that we have been with God by the love that we radiate. In a culture that insults and shames the other, practicing compassion is nothing short of miraculous, a very good “trick” indeed.
