I really like today's reading from Exodus, about the time Aaron and Miriam got jealous of Moses. He's called "the meekest man on the face of the earth." When God punishes Miriam by giving her leprosy, Moses pleads for her in such a heartfelt way, "Please! not this!"
Moses must have had boundless compassion and mercy. He didn't want to tightly grasp onto God's gifts to him, but when others started to prophesy, he thanked God for it. It was like he had an "abundance mentality," praising God for giving his gifts to all. Moses didn't want to be the special one as if he had a privileged place. He's a great role model for all those who have some sort of authority over others. How do you relate to Moses?
