Drama: God Noticed
Narrator: One ordinary day, as Moses was looking after his father-in-law’s ordinary sheep, he saw something out of the ordinary.
Moses: Hey look, It’s a bush!
Narrator: But it wasn’t an ordinary bush.
Moses: (somewhat surprised) It’s on fire.
Narrator: I suppose it was the fire that was out of the ordinary.
Moses: Wow! It’s still burning! That bush is really out of the ordinary.
Narrator: The fire kept burning long after the bush should have been burnt to a crisp.
Moses: That’s extraordinary! I really must have a closer look. (walks toward bush)
God: (BOOMING VOICE) Take off your shoes, Moses!
Moses: But, I like my shoes.
God: (BOOMING VOICE) You are standing on Holy Ground!
Narrator: Moses realized something out of the ordinary was happening here. And he took of his shoes.
Moses: Yeah, yeah. I get the point. Shoes off. (takes sandals off)
God: I have noticed my people in Egypt.
Narrator: God explained that He had noticed His people in Egypt.
God: I have noticed they are in great suffering.
Moses: (stroking chin) Yes, I remember them. I ran away.
God: I noticed that, too.
Narrator: God notices everything.
God: And I noticed you suffering here in the desert.
Moses: It has been a tough 40 years.
God: I looked after you by providing a wife for you, and a job, working for her father.
Moses: (sarcastic) Yeah, thanks for that. Having my father-in-law as my boss has been wonderful.
Narrator: Moses was being sarcastic.
God: Yes, I noticed that.
Moses: It’s not easy working for family.
God: But it has shaped you into a man able to be both a leader and humble.
Narrator: And that’s not easy!
Moses: I noticed.
God: And now, we have a lot of work to do.
Moses: Yes, Father.
Narrator: Moses had accidently called God, Father.
Moses: Did I?
Narrator: You did.
God: And I liked it. Let’s get to work, Son.
Moses: He called me Son!
Narrator: I noticed . . . . God encouraged Moses and explained the strategy they would use to set His people free. They would do it together.
