17.Letters from God (fictional letters based on people in the Bible)Dear Shiphrah and Puah

Dear Shiphrah and Puah,

     You are My faithful and loving midwives. My children are slaves yet Pharaoh is still afraid of my people multiplying, and has commanded that you to take the lives of every Hebrew male as they are born. Yet you have not done as you were ordered to do.

     You chose to be faithful to Me and My commands, and you did not kill these newborn babies. So you used wisdom and told Pharaoh that the women had delivered faster than you could arrive. Through your actions, you have saved the lives of many children, and also kept their mothers from suffering the loss of a child.

     I will reward you both, for you have protected my little ones. You are blessed with your own households and you shall always be remembered for you did that which is right, even though you risked your own lives.      Your love for Me has blessed my people and many still have their children thanks to your faithful obedience to Me rather than listening to Pharaoh. If others would live by your example they too will be blessed. You know that it is better to please God than it is to please man.

Love Your,

Lord God Almighty
