Ayoub asks for Moussa to bless the child. Moussa gladly holds the girl and tells her that the world is hard. He prays that God help her face what life brings, with health, happiness, and a long life.
As the family celebrates, Dawud returns and he has a story to share. When he was arrested, he tried to stay silent during interrogations. But finally, he gave them information. He knew they would kill him now that he had nothing more to offer. One night, Jesus came to him in a dream. He had flowing robes, eyes like fire, and feet like glowing bronze. Dawud fell to his knees in fear and then worship.
Dawud tells the other prisoners that he had seen the Lord. When the soldiers came for him, he wasn't taken to his death. Instead, he was released. His fine had been paid by Rivka's husband.
Moussa insists Dawud stop. He pleads with him not to fall into another crazy group that might cost him his life. But Dawud and the whole family tell Moussa what it's like to know Jesus. As followers, their lives are in Jesus's hands.
When we share our story with others, we should be prayerful, fearless and clear. "Spend a lot of time in prayer. Always be watchful and thankful. Pray for us too. Pray that God will open a door for our message. Then we can preach the mystery of Christ. Because I preached it, I am being held by chains. Pray that I will preach it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders. Make the most of every opportunity. Let the words you speak always be full of grace. Season them with salt. Then you will know how to answer everyone" (Colossians 4:2-6).
