- Genesis 31: 1-35
Jacob does something very unusual for a man in biblical times. He consults both of his wives in his decision to leave their father so he may follow God and return to Canaan. For the first time in her married life, Rachel and Leah agree on something.
Unfortunately, Rachel does not leave well enough alone. Her fear that Jacob’s God would not take care of her surfaces, so she hedges her bet and steals her father’s household gods.
Questions to Ponder:
- Do I expect God to fail me, so I set up a back up plan just in case?
- Do I lie and cover up my sins to keep them from being discovered?
Lord Jesus, help me to find true contentment in an intimate relationship with you. Help me not to rely on my looks or other things of this world and only turn to you for my fulfillment. Amen.
All for the glory of God,
