Devotions this week on the theme of subversive strength as seen through the women of Exodus
When she could hide him no longer she got a papyrus basket for him, and plastered it with bitumen and pitch; she put the child in it and placed it among the reeds on the bank of the river.
Exodus 2:3

Jochabed gave birth to a son. She hid him as long as she could, singing him liberation lullabies by moonlight, I imagine. When the time came to drown him – she refused. In an audacious act of hope she constructed a raft for him. He will rest on the waters, not under them, she determined as she let him go. Her relinquishment was borne of fierce mother-love. Living under injustice, she responded with hope.
