The Burning Bush is the second episode about Moses.
It starts when Uri and Gizmo goes to the land of Midian considering the possibility that their lost dog,Ruffles might be there.As they start their search,we follow the story of Moses,who now has a wife named Zipporah and has been living a reclusive life working as a shepherd.One day,Moses saw a burning bush while tending the flock of sheep.Out of curiosity,he goes into it and finally heard the voice of God.Moses was ordered by the Lord to go to Egypt and talk to the Pharaoh to free the Israelites from slavery and lead them to the land of milk and honey.Lacking confidence,he asked God a lot of questions.Moses received all the answered he needed and then he asked God to let Aaron speak for him lacking confidence in his ability to speak.After God allowed him to do so,Moses,Aaron and the elders of the Hebrew people went to Egypt to talk to the Pharaoh.
When they arrived in Egypt,Moses and Aaron talked to the Pharaoh and requested him to free the Israelites as slaves.But the Pharaoh relented and ordered more work by doubling the labor they usually do for his slaves to do.Then Moses went back and talked once more with the Pharaoh with the same request.This time,he performed a miracle by turning his rod into a snake.This did not impress the Pharaoh and asked the Egyptian magicians did the same.But the snake of Moses' rod chewed the snake of the magicians.But the Pharaoh remained stubborn.Later,Moses and Aaron talked him once again and this time,they turned the Nile River's water into blood.One of Pharaoh's magicians tried to do the same he did.So the Pharaoh never followed what Moses' God's order of releasing the slaves to freedom.Meanwhile,Uri and Gizmo are amazed by the competition between the Moses and the magicians.Unfortunately,they still could not find Ruffles.
This is probably an entertaining episode especially the competition between the Egyptian magicians and that of Moses.This will pique the interest of the children.In fact,they also would learn never to give up in life just like Moses did when the Pharaoh was stubborn about freeing the Israelites.
Apart from that,we also get learn that God can work through us if we allow him to do so.The Lord managed to give Moses the confidence he needed to speak to the Pharaoh and to be committed to his mission of leading his people to freedom.Overall,it could be a good lesson to learn especially when we are in the crossroads of our life or whenever we face tough and challenging situations.With God,we can handle everything and anything that life offers us.
