“The boy grew up and she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he was a son to her…
It happened in those days that Moshe grew up and went out to his brothers and saw their burdens.”

~ Shemos 2:10-11

In the Exodus narrative, we’re told of Moses’ journey from prince of Egypt to redeemer of the Jews.

Why repeat that he “grew up” ?

Because people mature in two different ways: either physically through aging or spiritually through experience. Moses’ second “growing up” was the latter, a result of empathizing with his enslaved fellow Jews and then taking responsibility to help them.

Transforming your life into the one you dream of, is a function of you taking responsibility, not aging.
