Moses - a book review
I had to spot light another book we've read recently. Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom by Carole Boston Weatherford, illustrated by Kadir Nelson.
This book is a Caledcott Honor book as well as the Corretta Scott King Award. Harriet has always been one story I loved in history class. How brave she was! This book had me in tears - I haven't been moved to tears from a children's book ever.
The book leads up to Harriet accepts God's call to go back and lead others north. It goes through how God prepared her from her early childhood for such a task. To have such a strong call on your life and to willingly agree to God plan. It was an encouragement to me.
As a disciple of God's, I am called to lead people to freedom. The freedom from sin and the hold this world has on our lives. It live in the world, but not be part of it. Just as God prepared the great people of the past, He prepares me. To Him be the glory for the privilege and enabling to do His work for His people.
