Moses had the opportunity right there after he killed the Egyptian to come clean, to tell the truth about himself. He didn’t do it, though. He did something else. He hid the Egyptian. That’s right. He hid the Egyptian. We have a tendency, don’t we, when we sin, I know I do, to kind of cover it up, to kind of take out a shovel and put some sand over it so no one will see it, no one will know it happens.
And fear and sin go hand in hand like chips and hot sauce, peanut butter and jelly, mashed potatoes and cream gravy. When i sin, if I don’t deal with it, fear will come in. Remember me with the boa constrictor, “okay, I’ve disobeyed my parents and I was happy i had the snake but i began to be fearful, “oh no. What if mom and dad find out?” And that’s what happened to Moses.
