An address to children:

On the fourth day of the Exodus, Pharaoh’s emissaries reminded the Jews that they had only been granted a three-day pass to worship in the desert; it was time to return to Egypt as slaves.

The Jews, however, sent the emissaries back with a message for Pharaoh: that their destiny was not in his hands, but in the hands of G-d Who set them free. To demonstrate the strength of their faith in G-d, they daringly journeyed back a few steps in a bold show of defiance to Pharaoh.

When the evil inclination tries to intimidate a Jew that the “Pharaohs of the world” are so strong and it’s easier to just capitulate to their power, the Jew proudly walks in the steps of his forefathers – he sends the evil inclination running on its heels, and marches confidently onward to receive G-d’s Torah.
