Spread the love

Today, we will examine how to succeed in life that is full of thorny paths. Nobody, not even those great prophets are immune to challenges. In fact, the challenges these priests of God face are far greater that those of their congregations; hence Hur and Aaron had to support Biblical Moses by raising his hands up. When they did, Israel prevailed. Exodus 17: 12 records the event as follows: ‘’But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
