Hello readers, it's Sunday again and I know that the day it's almost over, and I'm just wishing you a happy Sunday now, lol. I went to church today again, though I was kind of late and they have already taken an offering, well, "better late than never" I met my pastor preaching, the topic he preached, was what birthed this topic, I was happy that I met in preaching because what he preached about touched me, after service, we went home and I had to go to work, not because we are working on Sunday, but I just have to go because it's a free day for me in the office. 

What do I mean by helping hands, there are a lot of people who still find it hard to offer help, not because they are not capable or because they don't want to, but because of some things they have encountered in the past, my pastor used Moses in the Bible as a typical example, I guess we all know the story of Moses right? Well, I am not sure some of them know what happen to him after he escaped Egypt from the hands of Pharaoh, cause I'm not just hearing it from the first time, yes, I'm guilty of not studying my bible always, lol.

In the beginning, before the birth of Moses, the Israelites were suffering at the hands of Pharaoh and the Egyptians (that was after the death of Joseph the dreamer) the Israelites decided to cry to the Lord for help and God promised them a savior that I'll lead them out of Egypt, pharaoh heard of it and decided to kill every child, born in that period, the Egyptians army paraded the entire house of the Israelites to kill all the children under the age of five years old to a day old child, Moses still a baby then and the family hid him until they can no longer hide him anymore, they decided to send it to pharaoh daughter, by putting baby Moses in the basket and pushing him to the place that pharaoh daughter usually takes her bath, when she saw baby Moses adorable smile, she falls in love with immediately and decided to keep him.

She raised as his son and also gave him a crown to be Prince that will take after the pharaoh, when he passed on, one day, Moses was walking around the yard, when he saw one of the Egyptians army beating up an Israelite man. Moses felt that what the Egyptian army was doing was wrong, he decided to step in and fight for the Israelite man, which eventually turn into something else that lead him to kill the Egyptian army, he quickly dogged a grave and burial him. Days later Moses was walking around the yard again, and this time he saw two Israelites fighting, he went to ask what caused the fight, which lead to one of them asking if he wants to kill him the same way, he killed the Egyptians army, news spread like a wide fire Moses couldn't help himself anymore, he flew from Egypt for his life.

Moses was in the wilderness for days, with no water to drink, two ladies went to the well to fetch water, they saw Moses and Moses rendered to help them fetch the water, after helping them to draw water from the well, he drank from the well also, the girls got home early and the father was surprised, he asked why they are back so earlier than expected, they explained that a man helped them to draw the water from the well and put it on their head, the father was amazed and told the girls to go fetch the man, so they can also offer him help, Moses accepted the invitation and went. 

Moral lesson

Never let what people did to you in the past, affect you, like Moses right here, he never gave up on helping people after his people turned on him. 

When he was in the wilderness and saw the that has the strength to pull out water from the well. The help you give today can be your helping hand tomorrow.

When I saw the topic, I even thought you wanted to talk about one mumu company that have the same name (helping hands international 😆).

Most times we are reluctant to help people because of past experiences but we shouldn't let the sin of a few individuals hinder us from helping others

Pastor pastor, if you open your church, market go sell, you Sabi preach 🤣🤣. That's a good lesson, don't allow the past to prevent you from doing good to others. You don't know who is who, if you decide not to help again, you might end up missing an angel
