Trying to Break Israel with More Work & Fewer Resources

These words from Pharaoh in Exodus remind me of the way many politicians are treating public school teachers today. Just as the Israelites were, I am tired of this oppression and call out to the Lord for help.

Exodus 5:6-9 NLT

“That same day Pharaoh sent this order to the Egyptian slave drivers and the Israelite foremen: “Do not supply any more straw for making bricks. Make the people get it themselves! But still require them to make the same number of bricks as before. Don’t reduce the quota. They are lazy. That’s why they are crying out, ‘Let us go and offer sacrifices to our God.’ Load them down with more work. Make them sweat! That will teach them to listen to lies!””
