1. INTELLIGENCE: Moses had intelligence from the questions he asked the Lord God on the mountain of the God in Horeb. Exodus 3 and 4
2. FORESIGHT: Moses (Our example of typical leader from the Bible) had foresight from the way he asked God questions in the wilderness, on the Mountain of God in Horeb. Exodus 3 and 4.
3. INQUISITIVENESS: Moses was inquisitive in the way he said "let me now turn aside and see this great sight, why the thorn-bush is not burnt." Exodus 3:3. Also Moses was the first recorded person in the Bible who specifically asked God he would like to see the Glory of God.
4. HUMILITY: Moses was very humble and the signs he showed were a measure of his humility. The Story of Moses and Pharaoh can somehow be likened to pride versus humility. Pharaoh was proud, Moses was humble. Even the Bible says Moses was the meekest man on the earth, far above all others living on the face of the earth. Number 12;3. Meekness includes humility and gentleness.
5. THE FEAR OF GOD: Moses feared God. We can see this from Exodus 3:6. Also there are other numerous examples in the Bible where the fear of God was made manifest to us in the life of Moses.
6. AN INTERCESSOR (INTERCEDING FOR OTHERS): Moses was an intercessor. He used to plead to God on behalf of his kinsmen (countrymen). We can readily see this quality from Numbers 14: 11-21.
It can also be seen readily here that Moses sought for God's glory, not his own.
7 A GOOD NATURE: This can readily be seen from the way he helped others. He usually did not like seeing wrong.
We can see this from one of some examples in the Bible in Exodus 2: 15-19
8 A FORGIVING SPIRIT: This can be seen from the way he pleaded for his sister when she and Aaron his brother murmured against him for his foreign wife. Numbers 12
9 NOT WANTING TO LEAD: This is another example of Moses's qualities. After God had convinced him he would be with him in the land of Egypt, he told God to look for another person to go to Egypt. Exodus 4: 10-13.
10 KNOWING HOW TO USE GOOD MEN: This can be seen in the way he urged his brother in law (Hobab) to follow them to the promised land, Numbers 10: 29-32. We should note the clever way in which Moses urged him to follow the Isrealites, not first telling Hobab his experience and knowledge in the wilderness would be useful.
11 DOING GOOD TO OTHERS: We see this readily in the way he treated his father in law when he came over to see him in the wilderness. It can also readily be seen in his efforts to help his fellow Israelites and the way in which he helped Reuel's daughter in Exodus 2.
12. BEING A NATIONALIST BY NATURE: We readily see this in the way in which he helped his fellow Israelites, the way he pleaded for people and from Hebrews Numbers 11: 3-7
13 FAITH IN GOD AND FAITHFULNESS TOWARDS HIM : This is readily seen in Numbers 12:7 where God himself spoke to Aaron and Miriam about Moses's faithfulness and from Hebrews 11: 23-29
14. REVERENCE FOR GOD: Moses Always called enemies of Israel, or his enemies, enemies of God. We can see this in his prayer to God "Rise up Jehovah, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thy face."
15. REALISM, BEING REALISTIC: We can see this from Numbers 11: 10-15. Here Moses readily agreed that he alone could not bear the burden of leadership, and that he needed others to assist him.
16 A COURAGEOUS SPIRIT: We see this quality in Exodus 3, where he turned to see a strange thing in the remote wilderness, where even many courageous people would have fled; and also we see this qualities in numerous other examples (for example Numbers 11:15) when He asked he should be killed, if his request was not met.
17. GETTING ANGRY SOMETIMES: We see this quality readily many times in Moses in the first five books of the Bible. Sometimes he took this quality to the extreme by getting angry unrighteously. Exodus 32:19.
18 SELFLESSNESS: We see this quality many times in the Bible in the way he cared for others, and in the way in which he did not seek his personal glory.
19 PRUDENCE: We see this quality easily in the prudent way in which he told his father in law that he was going to Egypt to see this Brethren, and not to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Exodus 4: 18.
20 NOT ENVYING BY NATURE: We see this in his advice to Joshua in Numbers 11; 1-29. He even wished others were prophets too!!
21 LISTENING TO SOUND ADVICE AND GIVING SOUND ADVICE: We can see this in the advice he gave to Joshua about envying others, and generally to his fellow Israelites. He also listened to the good advice of his father-in-law.
23 FAITHFULNESS TO ONE'S WIFE: There was no evidence in the Bible Moses was unfaithful to his wife.
24 DEPENDENCY ON GOD. Moses was dependent throughout on God, while leading the children of Israel out of Egypt.
Finally, Moses probably feared and hated serpents, signifying a hatred for evil, and anything bad in general. He fled when the rod (or staff) was changed to a serpent, and it was only a way of probably conquering this fear God asked him what he held (God, we must remember, saw his sandals and definitely saw his staff), and later he (God) turned it into a serpent, so Moses would know that his God was more than dependable
