Moses was an example of genuine humility

If thou wilt forgive their sin and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. Exodus 32:32.

After the children of Israel had listened at Sinai to the giving of the Ten Commandments, they fell into idolatry, and the Lord was angry with them.

He said to Moses, "Let me alone ... that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation."

But no; the man who had learned to seek after the lost sheep in the wilderness, who had endured cold and storm rather than leave one sheep to perish, could not give up the people placed in his care. He pleaded with God not to give them up, but to forgive their transgression....

Often times we give up on helping others expecting to help once and for all!

We mislead ourselves and loose humility when we prioritise ourselves at the expense of those pit under our care by God!

God is calling us to humbly take care of those placed under our guard so that they do not remain vulnerable.

Remember it is Satan's plan to see people impoverished, orphaned, widowed, begging, hungry, heartbroken :so that he mocks the love of God (mocks God: for God is love 1 John 4. 8)

We are called to a battle of self-sacrifice where we need to deny ourselves and put others first. Moses asked God to blot out his name from the Book of Life for the sake of Israel.

Can you dedicate your gains, profits, salaries, riches to the cause of helping others in need?

Matthew 19:21 - 2421 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.23  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Be Blessed!
