05-15-2024 Sirach 45 V0103 Moses was God’s beginning His favorite




The Book of Sirach Ch 45 v- One thru Three

1 From God came the man who would win the favor of all the living: Dear to God and human beings, MOSES, whose memory is a blessing. 2 God made him like the angels in honor, and strengthened him with fearful powers. 3 At his words God performed signs and sustained him in the king’s presence. He gave him the commandments for his people, and revealed to him his glory.


Moses is universally recognized as a pivotal figure in the history of the Abrahamic faiths, chiefly for his role in transmitting the Ten Commandments from God to the Israelites. His favor with God is deeply rooted in religious texts and tradition, providing a timeless example of leadership, faith, and obedience.


The story of Moses is chronicled in the Hebrew Bible’s Book of Exodus. His life is marked by profound episodes where his actions aligned with God’s will, demonstrating unwavering commitment to his divine mission. Even before the momentous event at Mount Sinai, Moses was chosen by God to lead the Israelites out of Egyptian bondage—a testament to God’s trust in him.


Moses’ favor with God is often attributed to his humility, as mentioned in Numbers 12:3, where Moses is described as the most humble man on the face of the earth. This humility allowed him to serve as a conduit for God’s will, rather than seeking personal power or glory. His close relationship with God is illustrated by the frequent direct conversations between them, a privilege not afforded to many.


Receiving the Ten Commandments, a cornerstone of moral and spiritual guidance, was a crucial moment for humanity, cementing Moses’ favor with God. These laws represented not just a set of rules but also a covenant between God and His people. Moses’ role in this covenant was central; he was the mediator, the one who ascended the mountain to commune with God on behalf of all Israelites.


The enduring nature of the Ten Commandments across millennia speaks to their divine origin and to Moses’ unique position as their human trustee. The commandments have shaped the moral compass of societies, influencing laws, ethics, and personal conduct. Moses’ favor with God, therefore, is not limited to his lifetime but extends through history as the commandments continue to guide human behavior.


Throughout all eternity, Moses is remembered and revered for his faithful service and the reception of the Ten Commandments. In this way, his favor with God transcends time, leaving an indelible mark on the collective conscience of countless generations, and underscoring the importance of obedience to divine will. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for our niece Brittany. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Moses God’s Favorite**


Upon the mount of Sinai’s peak,

In silence, where the heavens speak,

There stood a man, by God’s own call,

To serve as their guide, to lead them all.


Moses, the shepherd, humbly trod,

A man of faith, beloved by God.

Chosen to free the captive clan,

And bring them to the promised land.


With staff in hand and heart inclined,

He sought the Lord, his will to find.

Upon that mount, in holy flame,

The Lord Almighty spoke his name.


“Take off thy shoes,” the voice declared,

“For where thou stand’st is holy, spared.”

The ground was sacred, set apart,

A hallowed space to share God’s heart.


In favor found, with trust bestowed,

Moses beheld the path that glowed.

A covenant of ancient days,

To walk in God’s commanding ways.


The tablets two, in stone inscribed,

By God’s own finger were described.

Ten edicts clear, to guide their life,

To quell the strife, absolve the spite.


“Thou shalt have no gods before Me,”

A call to worship, pure and free.

“Remember the Sabbath, honor kin,”

The rules to hold their world within.


“Thou shalt not kill, nor steal, nor lie,”

Commands that echoed through the sky.

“Adultery, covet not,” it read,

To guard the heart, the soul, the bed.


With laws in hand, Moses descended,

His face with holy light was blended.

The tablets spoke of love and fear,

A moral code for all to hear.


The favor found in Moses’ plight,

Brought forth the laws that shine so bright.

A testament of time’s eternal embrace,

The Ten Commandments for our human race.


And still today, we look above,

To find the grace, the law, the love.

For in those words, we see the face,

Of God’s own favor, Moses’ grace. Amen.
