Jethro, Moses' father-in-law said, 'Moses, you're working to hard.' It was an expression of concern for the husband of his daughter, but was it good advice?

Great Sermon! After hearing more than a dozen of sermons on Exsodus 18, all praising Jethro, I would like to say to you: Keep preaching precious brother!!!
