Exodus chapter 18 is the story of Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses, visiting him in the wilderness. Jethro is a Midianite priest and he brings Moses' wife and two sons to him. Jethro is pleased to hear of all the good things God has done for the Israelites and he offers a sacrifice to God.
The chapter then goes on to describe how Jethro advises Moses on how to better lead the people. He suggests that Moses appoint leaders to help him judge the people and to teach them the laws of God. Jethro's advice is wise and practical, and Moses follows it.
This chapter is an important reminder of the importance of wise counsel. Jethro's advice is a great example of how wise counsel can help us make better decisions. It also shows us the importance of listening to the advice of others and considering their perspective. We can learn a lot from Jethro's example and apply it to our own lives.
