preached by

In this episode of Bible Thoughts, Pastor Rusten considers the story of Shiphrah and Puah in Exodus chapter one. The slaughter of Hebrew boys could have been safe, rare, and legal if the midwives had only compromised and followed Pharaoh's direction. Instead, their rebellion leads to Pharaoh weaponizing his entire citizenry. What is God's response to their pragmatic oversight? Apparently, he blesses them. What might we glean from the story of these two brave midwives?
