And the LORD said to Moses, “See, I have set you as a god to Pharaoh, and Aaron your brother will be your prophet. To be set up as a god by God is pretty good, one may think. Not so fast, remarks the Midrash, for Moses was a god to Pharaoh and that was nothing to boast about.  To win everyone’s admiration all the time is impossible. Whose admiration we earn and for what reason we’ve earned it, must also be evaluated.
