2. Needs of the many
3. Yes, even you!

ICEBREAKER: What was your worst haircut experience?
1. To set the historical context for Moses’ birth story, what was the problem the Egyptians were seeking to address [Exodus 1:7-12]? Why were the Israelites flourishing [cf. Genesis 12:1-3;
Genesis 15:1-6; and Genesis 15:12-16]?
2. According to Exodus 1:15-22, what was Pharaoh’s solution to the extraordinary growth of the Hebrew population in Egypt? What does this show you about the value of human life in those days? Has anything changed over time [cf. Genesis 1:26-28; Psalm 139:13-16; and Jeremiah 1:5]?
3. Moses’ mother was named Jochebed [Exodus 6:20]. What did her actions in Exodus 2:2-3 say about her character and personality [cf. Psalm 131:1-3; Proverbs 31:10-31; and 2 Timothy 1:5]?
4. What emotion did Pharaoh’s daughter show that resulted in the baby’s salvation from death [Exodus 2:6]? Why is this virtue so necessary in our world [cf. Judges 2:18; 1 Kings 8:50; and Matthew 9:35-38]?
5. Why do you think all these “coincidences” fell into place to preserve Moses during his early years [Exodus 2:5-9]? What does this teach you about God’s providence [cf. Esther 4:13-14; Acts 14:15-17; and Romans 8:28]?
6. The great irony of this story was that Pharaoh viewed the males as threats [Exodus1:22], but it was the women who thwarted his population control plans, either knowingly or unknowingly. What lessons to you learn from this irony [cf. 1 Corinthians 1:26-29; 2 Corinthians 12:9-10; and James 2:5]?
7. What did you find helpful or challenging about this Sunday’s message?
“Anything under God’s control
is never out of control.”
