We can choose to wring our hands and worry as we see events around us, or we can choose to react with faith in God evidenced by righteous action. The midwives Shiprah and Puah chose life and through their action, Moses’s life was spared. He went on to lead the people from bondage to freedom. Every righteous action has the same potential for far-reaching benefit and blessing. Let’s choose to show God’s love to those who are troubled, who are needy and lonely. Through our work in Israel, God’s light is shining in the darkness.
