After Moses’ father in Law Jethro gave Moses advice about sharing the burden of his ministry with other leaders among the people of Israel, Exodus 18:24 says: “So Moses listened to his father-in-law …”. It should be instructive to us that Moses LISTENED!
He didn’t respond by objecting: “But I am the one who is God’s chosen leader! I have all the answers, not YOU!” No, he had the grace and humility to listen, and to see that the suggestion given to him by his father-in-law was good. It would be a blessing both to Moses himself and to the congregation if it were implemented. Many of us would have to admit that we would do well to apply some of this same grace, and, rather than thinking we know it all, LISTEN to the good input that God has others whisper in our ears!
