No Ordinary Child

“He was no ordinary child.”

That’s how scripture describes Moses in the Book of Hebrews. His parents did everything they could to protect their son from a murderous king, because they knew Moses was special…unusual…extraordinary.

“By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict” (Hebrews 11:23).

Of course, no parent looks at their baby and thinks, “You know, he’s just really kind of ordinary. Nothing special about him at all.”

Of course he’s special! He’s extraordinary! He’s made in the image of God.

And that’s what Moses’ parents knew. They looked at their son and saw, not just a baby to be saved, but the man he would become. They couldn’t know, of course, all that his life would hold—all he’d become, from Egyptian prince to Hebrew leader—but they knew their hopes and dreams and desires for his life.

They saw what every parent sees: potential.

Blackbox sees potential, too. Each boy in the Blackbox home has unique, God-given talents and personality and potential. Each has the potential to honor God and point others to Him, the potential to lead, the potential to live a long, productive life and become everything that God has in store. Blackbox offers each boy a home, an education, counseling and…the opportunity to reach his potential.

Because to Blackbox—and to God—there is no ordinary child.
