Torah Haiku: Shmot

“I’ll be with your mouth / And teach you what you will say / That all may be free.” (#13: Shmot)

Even Moshe, perhaps the Bible’s greatest leader, was “slow of speech” (Ex. 4:10): G!d promised at the burning bush that G!d would be with Moshe’s mouth and teach him what to say (Ex. 4:12). Recalling that freedom depended on opening to the guidance of spirit, what if today we tried to hear G!d’s voice before we spoke?
