Aaron was Moses’ right-hand man and brother. He was vital during the Exodus from Egypt; he helped Moses by speaking out and calling for the Israelites to be freed. Individually they each had their flaws, but together Moses and Aaron made a powerful team. Their obedience to God helped to achieve one of the greatest events in Jewish history.
Aaron’s story, often overlooked, is mingled with success and failure, highs and lows. But Aaron played his role to the best of his ability without demanding any of the glory. His life is a lesson to us all in how to serve God away from the limelight. Right to the end of his life, he retained a servant heart towards God and to others – may we do the same.
