In Exodus 18, Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, observed Moses single-handedly managing the Children of Israel and accurately discerned the emotional, mental and physical toll it was taking on him. Jethro wisely counselled Moses to appoint lieutenants to oversee segments of the people and tolled Moses’ to keep his oversight only for his leadership. As a result of Jethro’s wise counsel, more people were helped and Moses was provided a measured amount of relief.
