Context - Moses Was NOT Confused
When we read Exodus the 2nd chapter, we see that Moses was raised by his Hebrew mother in the Egyptian (Kemetic) Pharaoh's house.
We can see that he was never confused about who he was, or who his people were.
Even though we see in that chapter that Pharaoh's daughter saved his life, which I'm sure he and his family were eternally grateful - we see below in the book of Hebrews, that he still refused to be called her son, or an Egyptian.
How was that?
Moses knew that he was a Hebrew. Yes I'm sure he experienced the privileges of the Egyptians, beginning with the fact that he was never a slave. But when he was old enough to decide for himself (teenager?), he made a clear decision that neglecting his people's struggle and needs was NOT God's will.
This is an excellent example of the power of knowing your God given culture within another culture. I can't help but to believe that his mother (and father?) made sure of this.
This is also the HUGE difference between European slavery vs Biblical as well as all other slaveries in history.
European slavery broke up the families. The children had to grow up basically not knowing who they really were. This was detrimental! And without a doubt the worse type of slavery, because it strips a people of, not only their history...but also just as important - their culture.
Culture basically means a way of thinking. [Webster]
Because Moses was clear of who he was, and not confused, God was able to use him to deliver his people out of bondage as well as give the Israelites their own identity and purpose through knowing their history. God also used him to give them His holy laws for structure in who they are as a people, to know who their God is, how they should worship, how they should live, what they should eat, and how they should treat people...even strangers (Ex 22:21 and many other scriptures). God basically used Moses to teach them HIS culture (His way of thinking).
But Moses had to be absolutely clear of who he was FIRST. This is foundational...
That understanding of himself was the birth of his purpose and vision for the needs of his people.
It was all...."by faith.." And faith worketh by love (Gal 5:6).
But this unique type of slavery that we went through has left us disoriented.
My grandmother use to always say "Love without wisdom is dangerous."
To neglect the needs of your people - for any reason - is clearly NOT God's will, and NOT "the faith that was once delivered to the saints.." (Jude vs3)
First thing always has to be first...it's very simple.
Lets not be confused.
By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season ~ Heb 11:24-25
He that hath an ear, let him hear..
