The Dynamic Duo
That's the label I have given to Moses and Aaron. Not original, but it gets your attention. I have always appreciated the portion of Ecclesiastes that talks about partnership: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
See, isn't that good! But what confuses me is that God originally wanted Moses to be a solo act.
Moses was doubting what God could do through him, so God gave him Aaron, his older brother. They were good together but later Aaron would be a screw-up [Exodus 32:21]!
It seems conflicted - until you realize it isn't about "solo or duet", but trust. God wanted Moses to trust HIM and not someone else!
So Moses has to learn the lesson the hard way - Trust ME first.
Perhaps too simple, but I wanted you to think about it.
