As an inspiration to service there is no stronger influence than a study of the life of one who has given his all in the service of mankind. As we look back across the ages at those heroic figures who made an indelible mark in the history of spiritual development, one of the first is the stalwart figure of Moses, who gave to the world the vision gained on mount Sinai. That the vision was given first to a people who repeatedly murmured at being led out of bondage, but makes the inspiration of his life the more compelling.

Moses must have possessed from the first that same independence of character which compelled his great forefather Abraham to obey the voice that urged him to get out of his country and to go into a land which Truth would show him. He had a hatred of oppression and a generous passion to help the oppressed, for we find him taking the side of his fellow countryman against an Egyptian taskmaster; then protecting the daughter of Reuel, priest of Midian, otherwise known as Jethro, against the shepherds. Still later he was led to his great life work, the freeing of the Hebrew captives in the land of Egypt, not by the strength of his own right arm, but in the strength of the God of Israel.
