The Essential 100, Day 11

More family squabbles. Now that Jacob is older and has children, the arguments that he had with his own brother have now moved to arguments between his sons. Read Genesis 37.

Joseph is the favorite son and what he says and does ends up making him the favorite target. When we look at our family, God reminds us that he is Lord of our family and our family relationships. What are we teaching our family? Do we admit our sin to them so that they learn and understand how to follow Christ?

God desires to work and move in our family. Will we let him? Will we open ourselves up to those we are closest to so they can see and understand God working in our lives?
