Family

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Genesis 29:1-20

When Jacob reaches his final destination of Haron, he is able to locate Laban and his family fairly quickly. At this point, Jacob and Laban had never met. But once the family relationship is confirmed, Laban welcomes and invites Jacob to be part of his family, and Jacob reciprocates by working for his uncle. A win--win situation for both men.

The exchange between Jacob and Laban highlighted for me the importance and beauty of family (blood, adopted, through marriage or friendship), as well as the lifeline that family can be to us in times of difficulty.

How often do you think about the importance of family relationships? Do you actively work to maintain family connections? Would you take some time this week to reach out to your family (whatever your "family" looks like) and let them know that you care for and love them? Tami

Family is vital in my life.

We are praying daily for family members, both believers and non believers.

Before I was let out of prison about 25 years ago I ask God to take me home because I never knew anyone and about 4 months before my release I ask God for a family because I knew my blood family wouldn't want me around and I was right and God gave me my hearts desire. I have the largest family and age doesn't matter in this family. In August we will gather together and celebrate what God has done over the last 25 years and how God's faithfulness with family and friends. Family is very important to God and family should be important to us.
