Antithesis of Life of Moses

Moses was the child of a slave, yet the son of a Princess:
He was born in a hut, but reared in a Palace:
He inherited extreme poverty yet enjoyed immense wealth:
Educated for a court, he did his greatest work in a desert:
He was the mightiest of warriors, yet the meekest of men:
Moses possessed the wisdom of this world, yet had the faith of a little child:

His funeral was not attended by a single human creature: but the Creator Himself was present:

His death created no great stir on earth, but occasioned a great commotion in Heaven.

(Exod. 2. 10; Num. 12. 3, 7; Deut. 34. 5-7; Jude 9)


Character of Moses

Meekness is not weakness. On the contrary, it is the sign and cause of strength. The ox lies still while the geese are hissing. The mastiff is still while the curs are yelping. Moses was king in Israel because of his great meekness among a provoking people.
(Num. 12. 3; Heb. 3. 5)
