Putting the basket in the water.

The reference to this is in Exodus 2:3, “…she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with tar and pitch.  Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile.”  When the mother of Moses could no longer hide him from the Egyptians…she was forced to put the basket in the water and release the baby to God.  Letting go of our children is difficult.  Whether it’s their first day of school or just starting college, I believe Moms have a harder time of relinquishing their control.  But just as the mother Moses had to trust God with her baby, we need to also.  For if you think about it…God can love and care for our kids much better, for He’s always with them.
