When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. (Exodus 17:12)
A good co-worker is a good helper, a good staff you can put your hands on because it is reliable, can support you and hold you up, and never refuses to help like the saying in Cantonese goes: "won’t kick your elbow".
In those days, after Moses had led the Israelites out of Egypt, the first battle to fight was against the Amalekites. He sent his young and promising assistant Joshua to select people for the battle. Joshua was not yet a military leader at that time, he was not yet in that key position. But he “didn’t kick Moses’ elbow” and took the order to fight.
Moses stood on the mountain praying, holding the staff of God in his hands, i.e. the authority of God, and Joshua fought at the foot of the mountain. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. Moses was just human, he was tired and weak in his legs and arms. Fortunately, two good helpers, Aaron and Hur, took a stone for Moses to sit on, then held his hands up, one on each side to keep his hands from sagging. The Israelites finally won the first battle in history after the exodus.
Man has two arms, one on the left and one on the right. In a way, every leader does not need just one “right-hand” man, but two. Thanks to the Lord for hearing our cry, HE gave us one arm the Administrative and Finance Officer, but the other arm is still missing, the Program Executive. Walk without one arm! Who can help?
We also need a Ministry Coordinator to help those interested to get to know our vision and mission. For all the recruitment details, please visit http://www.twr.org.hk/2016_update/recruitment20211203.php (Only Chinese version is available.) Lord, send Your workers to help us please! Amen!
