Underqualified: What will they think?
Moses was worried about how the people might respond to him. We often over-anticipate events and then panic over what might go wrong. God does not ask us to go where he has not provided the means to help. God seems to take joy in using ordinary things for extraordinary purposes. What are the ordinary things in your life—your voice, a pen, a hammer, a broom, a musical instrument? While it is easy to assume God can use only special skills, you must not hinder his use of the everyday contributions you can make. Little did Moses imagine the power his simple staff would yield when it became the rod of God.
