When Strength Becomes Weakness
Passage: Exodus 2:11–2:25
Question: About 10-12% of the world’s population has this unique trait. What is it?
Answer: They are left handed!
Person 1: Hey - I just got a new pair of gloves from Amazon today.
Person 2: Oh yeah, how do you like them?
Person 1: There was a problem. When I opened the box, I discovered they’re both left-handed. On one hand that’s great, on the other hand it’s just not right.
Seriously though, in a 2019 study it was found that left-handed people have disadvantages in a number of significant areas including a higher risk of certain diseases and experiencing painful accidents.
Every strength has a weakness. As we’ll see today in our passage, relying on our strengths is not always a good thing. Today Pastor Wes brings us a sermon from Exodus chapter 2, called "A Story of Deliverance: When Strength Becomes Weakness."
