    "But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that hears the word, and anon with joy receives it; yet hath he not root in himself, but endures for a while: for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, by and by he is offended."

    In doing something good in the eyes of God, the will be difficulties and rebukes from people all around you(verse 21) but why fear man who can only hurt the flesh and not obey God who can hurt both the flesh and the soul. Remember, nothing done for God is ever in vain. So don't be like Moses who feared the task he was given but rather like Christ say, "not mine but Thy will be done" mark:14:39
  • Ifere Peter
    We need the courage of Moses and Aaron to answer the call of God that we should not mind they faces or they terror as we lead the people of God
