- Moses didn’t come from the largest or most influential tribe in Israel (6:14-18).
- This family would soon be responsible for leading all of God’s people in worship (6:19).
- Moses’ parents had a union that the Law would later forbid (6:20; cf. Lev. 18:12).
- Moses’ wife is not mentioned in this list because she wasn’t an Israelite (6:21-25; cf. 2:21).
- Scripture interrupts the timeline with a genealogy to remind us that God uses unlikely candidates for remarkable purposes (6:26-27).
- Moses had plenty of reasons to feel insecure, but God was his needed stability (6:28-30).
- Your family’s dysfunction does not limit what God can do through you.
- Your personal decisions do not disqualify you from meaningful service.
- When insecure, remember who God is and repeat what He has said.
- Look to Jesus, who can bring lasting fruit from your family tree.
