A Family Grows - Jacob’s Family
Bible Verse - "Let all that you do be done in love." 1 Corinthians 16:14
Jacob experiences love at first sight when he meets Rachel at the well. Welcomed into his uncle Laban’s household, Jacob agrees to work seven years in order to marry Rachel. When the wedding celebration finally arrives, Laban tricks Jacob into marrying Rachel’s older sister, Leah. Realizing the deception, Jacob confronts his uncle, who gives him Rachel’s hand for another seven years of service.
You might trick yourself into believing you deserve good things, just as Laban and Jacob played tricks. But why does God give you good things? What is the best gift God has given you?
