1/22/18 Genesis Chapters 30-31
As we read these passages we see an example of one of our greatest challenges — envy. In Chapter 30 we see that Rachel envied her sister Leah for the children she bore to Jacob while Rachel had none. And, instead of loving her sister’s children we see Rachel take drastic actions to try to “catch up” & ensure that her “children” (even born of her servant, Bilhah) would be descendants of Jacob.
Our lesson — guard our thoughts and our motives — do not allow envy to control our actions.
