Nothing to see here? Have faith!
Everyone knows the story of Moses’ birth, rescued from the river, bought up by Pharaoh’s daughter. But after that his life seems to go nowhere.
He doesn’t use his privilege strategically. He feels for his countrymen, but expresses it as an impulsive murder of an Egyptian and has to run away. He marries a foreign girl with seemingly no intention of returning.
The chapter ends with God, in parallel to Moses’ apparently dead end life, contemplating the suffering and chosenness of his people.
Nothing is apparently happening, as it is often in life. But much is about to. That is what faith is for.
