In our evening Bible reading at home last night we read this exchange between Pharaoh and Moses,
“Then Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron and said, “Plead with the LORD to take away the
frogs from me and from my people, and I will let the people go to sacrifice to the LORD.” Moses said to Pharaoh, “Be pleased to command me when I am to plead for you and for your servants and for your people, that the frogs be cut off from you and your houses and be left only in the Nile.” And he said, “Tomorrow.” Moses said, “Be it as you say, so that you may know that there is no one like the LORD our God. (Exo 8:8-10 – ESV)”
“Tomorrow?” Why not right now? Why wait? Pharaoh, you are an . . . wait! I think that sounds too much like me. I hear myself saying things like this: “Tomorrow, I will start eating better.” “Tomorrow, I am going to me a better father, husband, friend, etc.” “Tomorrow, I will take care of this.” “I will talk to them about Jesus, tomorrow.” I guess Pharaoh isn’t the only one content to spend one more night with the frogs.
