Get to know the man with the best judge of character in the whole Bible, Jethro. This guy knows how to pick a winner, and the world sure is better for it.


The Bible is full of people who faithfully allowed God to work through seemingly mundane circumstances, allowing for Him to create world-altering moments. Jethro is one of those people and deserves every word written to him in this episode of Men & Women From The Bible.

Jethro was quietly living his life with his family and flock of sheep when a fugitive named Moses showed up one day. Moses proved his loyalty by protecting Jethro’s seven daughters from a band of disgruntled shepherds. To express his gratitude, he brought Moses in to live with his family, eventually becoming his father-in-law when Moses married his daughter.

Jethro could have never known the greatness God had in store for Moses’ life, who went on to lead the Israelite slaves out of Egypt and to their freedom. God worked countless miracles through Moses, like parting the Red Sea, providing manna from heaven and gushing water out of rocks. However, despite all the miracles, Moses was still a mere mortal, in need of wisdom and fatherly advice. Jethro stepped up as a spiritual mentor for his son-in-law. Without him, could Moses ever have reached his maximum potential?

Just imagine how God can use you if you faithfully play your part and keep your eyes open for the chance to promote God’s generosity to those around you. Don’t be intimidated by spiritual leaders like Moses; they, like everyone else, sometimes need the advice of someone like Jethro, a wise and trusted mentor.
