What practical key life learnings can we glean from the life of Aaron?
Context (Exodus thru Deuteronomy): Aaron was Moses’ older brother. He was used by God to be a spokesperson on behalf of Moses. Aaron was also the first High Priest who led the other priests to serve God in the temple. Aaron’s strength was to be a supporter for Moses leadership. Aaron’s weakness was that when Moses was not around, he was swayed by the opinions of others.
Key Life Learnings:
- All leaders need support for their weaknesses (Exodus 4:14-17; 17:8-15): Moses told God that he was not a public speaker, so God provided Aaron to be his spokesperson. When Moses could not hold up his arms anymore in prayer when Israel was fighting the Amalekites, God provided Aaron and Hur to support his hands. God never intended leaders to work alone. He will provide others to surround them in the areas that he has called them to leadership.
