One of the heroes of the Bible to me is Jethro. The reason is not that he was strong or appeared in many chapters. Sometimes one sentence can change the life of many people as the words of Martin Luther King-“I HAVE A DREAM” changed.
When our hero saw how Moses judged the people from morning to evening he just said these words:
” וַיֹּ֛אמֶר חֹתֵ֥ן מֹשֶׁ֖ה אֵלָ֑יו לֹא־טוֹב֙ הַדָּבָ֔ר אֲשֶׁ֥ר אַתָּ֖ה עֹשֶֽׂה׃”
“Moses’ father-in-law replied, “What you are doing is not good.” (Exodus 18:17)
The hero is also the one that knows how to say the correct words in the correct time.
After these words, and more, Moses didn’t judge the people alone. Moses could have more time for his family, although I don’t know if he used this time.
Without Jethro’s words- Moses wouldn’t have power to the
people, as Lennon sang!
