In The Saving Life of Christ (p.61), Major W. Ian Thomas discusses the actions of Moses in Exodus Two. "It says in verse 12, ‘And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.’ The enormity of the need knocked him off balance, and in a false sense of dedication he committed himself to the task instead of to God—‘He looked this way and that way…’ The one way he did not look was up! ‘And when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian.’ In his sensitivity to the presence of man, Moses became strangely insensitive to the presence of God. How easy it is for us to do just that and relate our actions to the approval or disapproval of men. Are you ‘man-conscious’ or ‘God-conscious’?
