May 8: There’s this really great and rather bizarre story in Exodus 17:8-13 where Joshua is battling a group of people called the Amalekites. As the battle starts, Moses is standing on a hill with his brother Aaron and another guy named, Hur. And there Moses is, holding up the staff of God. As long as Moses keeps his arms up, the Israelites are winning. But when he drops his arms, the Israelites start losing. So Hur and Aaron make this really great decision. They hold up Moses’ arms—and with God’s help, the Israelites are victorious.
