[Translated from the German]

Putting Off False Sense

When the lame man asked Peter and John for alms, he was healed by them. This constituted the disciples' alms, and it not only relieved but completely met the man's need. They gathered their gift from the source of truth. In order that we may be able to dispense such alms, we must first know the source from which to draw, and this lesson may be conveyed to us through the Biblical account of Moses' calling.

Moses was called of God to deliver his people out of bondage, but this task was put before him only after he had ceased to be at the court of Pharaoh, who was responsible for the subjugation of the people. Impelled by a sense of compassion and indignation, Moses attempted the work of salvation by means of mortal belief, before freeing himself from the thraldom imposed upon him; hence his failure, and the necessity that he flee from the court of Pharaoh in order to escape death.
