Why Goshen

“But on that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, where my people dwell, so that no swarms of flies shall be there, that you may know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.” Exodus 8:22

Singapore shares striking similarities to the Goshen of biblical times. In the Bible, Goshen was a land of refuge for its residents, and a blessing to its neighbours. Similarly, Singapore is a tiny land of refuge, sheltered from natural disasters and blessed with sufficient economic prosperity to be a blessing to its neighbours.

In 1965, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew envisioned the country as a “first world oasis in a third world region”. Within a short period of 50 years, his vision came to pass – Singapore today is a modern, developed, thriving city-state and one of the world’s most recognized economic powerhouses.

A land of refuge usually extends its strength to help others in weaker positions. Singapore has been compared to the Legend of Badang, a legendary Southeast Asian strongman who was small in stature, but made famous because of his supernatural strength and help he rendered to his neighbours. Singapore, though small in physical land size, has consistently volunteered support to others during times of crises. Often, the help that she metes out is disproportionately large to her natural size. For example, her contribution of US$100,000 towards relief and recovery for cyclone-hit Fuji, and sending of medical personnel to strengthen relief efforts in Nepal after its 7.8-magnitude earthquake in 2015, are some just some of her notable humanitarian efforts.
