While Moses was tending his father-in-law’s sheep in Midian, he saw a bush that looked like it was on fire. He decided to take a second look at the bush because it didn’t seem to be burning up. When the Lord saw Moses coming to take a closer look, God called to him from the middle of the bush, “Moses! Moses!” (Exodus 3:4 NLT).

Isn’t it interesting that God didn’t speak to Moses until he came to take a closer look? God had something to say to Moses, but He waited to say it until He had Moses’ full attention.

I’ve noticed when I’m busy, I often need to take a second look to really notice and pay attention to details. (Am I the only one who has ever driven away from home, only to turn the car around to go back to double check if the garage door closed?)

How about taking a closer look at our 2015–2017 Mission Grants?


There are still several left to fund before our biennium ends on March 31, 2017. It isn’t too late to help reach out to those training to share the message of salvation at the seminary in Nigeria through LWML Mission Grant #4! Offerings must reach the LWML office by March 31, 2017. Please give through your district treasurer or by clicking here to donate directly.
