As we continue our journey through Lent, Christians throughout Columbia will be sharing their own beautifully written ‘letters from the heart.’ Each is accompanied by corresponding relevant scripture verse(s), and linked to sources for further study. If you would like to join us on Columbia’s Lenten journey, please send us your ‘letter from the heart’ by email. Especially meaningful submissions will be printed. Let us continue our Lenten journey of repentance, meditation, and anticipation day-by-day, to its glorious culmination on Easter morning.
Pharaoh does not know God or appreciate God. Moses was trying to get the people that know God and want to worship Him to do it. But Pharaoh did not want them to go because they needed to work and he called them lazy. Pharaoh is not using very good appreciation of God because God created everything.
Why did God create Pharaoh this way? Because some people don’t have a very nice heart, like Pharaoh. Pharaoh was against God because he did not know God. Moses came back to God and he said, “Why have you made Pharaoh a troublemaker to the people?” Then God said, “Watch what I will do to Pharaoh since you have come back.”
