The Veil of the Temple and over our eyes
In Exodus 7-9, the heart of Pharaoh hardening is is like a veil being place in front of the eyes of those who choose not to follow God. It is removed when we turn to God, just like the veil was rent in two upon Jesus’ death.
There is hope, the veil has been torn. Have joy; it is our strength. We need to show hope and joy to those around us.
