Moses' highest achievement in his life, in my opinion, is not in his academic achievement in his first fourty years, neither is the family he had in the desert, or leading His people out of Egypt, but to be called the friend of God.
Sometimes we treat God as a celebrity. But some most famous celebrities are the loneliest people in the world. It struck me this week with the thought, that God desires our friendship.
Friends are comfortable with each other. They share their lives. They spend a lot of time together just hanging out, and they talk on the phone a lot. They just enjoy each other's presence. Sometimes friends ask for help or favour, but that's not the foundation of friendship. Friends do things for each other because they're friends.
To us, what Moses had done is most important, his achievement with the help of God is what made him famous. But to God, all the achievement is nothing, He can choose anyone, even a donkey, to do what He needs to do, but through all the things He did with Moses, He had a friend, and that's the most important thing in His eyes.
Isaiah 54:1 Sing O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord.
The production or achievement in the "desolate" worths a lot more "of the married wife". Time spent with God produces an economy that can't be measured by the world's standard.
