Moses sought to help his brethren (Acts 7:25). After he had killed an Egyptian in defense of an Israelite, other Israelites learned what Moses had done, although he did not know that his deed had become the news in Israel. When he tried to part two fighting Israelites, asking why they did each other wrong, one of the fighters challenged Moses as to why he thought he was a ruler and a judge over Israel, and did he plan to kill the Israelite like he did the Egyptian (Acts 7:26-28).
The Bible then says, “Then, at this saying, Moses fled and became a dweller in the land of Midian, where he had two sons” (Acts 7:29).
Moses did not want to be prosecuted for killing an Egyptian and Moses could see that his attempt to help Israel had been rejected. Therefore, he left and stayed away for forty years.
Let us be careful whom we reject, and if we have been rejected that does not mean God no longer desires to use us.
