S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Exodus 10:17 Now forgive my sin once more and pray to the Lord your God to take this deadly plague away from me.

The Leader Always Takes The Hit

You have made us obnoxious to Pharaoh and his officials and have put a sword in their hand to kill us.” O-bservation: These are the words of the Israeli supervisors who led their people in making bricks for the Pharaoh and the Egyptians. The words were directed to Moses and Aaron, who were pleading for the cause of their fellow Israelites at God’s command.
