Israel said, “Bring them to me so I may bless them.” Genesis 48:9 I don’t understand all the significance of giving blessing in the Old Testament. In this reading Joseph's dad blesses Pharaoh and then Joseph’s two sons. And why he purposely gives the greater blessing to...

God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. Genesis 45:7 Joseph realized that God’s hand was behind all of it—the dreams, being sold into slavery, being unjustly tossed into prison---all so he could provide food for...

They said to one another, “Surely we are being punished because of our brother. Genesis 42:21 Joseph had been put through hell because of the hatred of his brothers—selling him as a slave, but the brothers had their own hell to live as well. Guilt is a terrible thing to live with...

Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons. Genesis 37:3 We speak of heroes of the faith—there are none but one, Jesus. Israel (Jacob) put one son above all the others. Joseph was smug, Judah and his sons were downright bad, The good news is that Jesus came to heal those of...

On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:37-38 The Genesis reading today shows great...

Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” Genesis 32:27 It was a bizarre scene. Jacob wrestled with God and there was no way he could trick God and win. He had tricked his brother, his father and his uncle—but in wrestling with God, all he could do was hang...

When the Lord saw that Leah was not loved, he enabled her to conceive, but Rachel remained childless. Genesis 29:31 There is so much I do not understand about God—but I am ok with that. People make things so complicated. In the Genesis reading Jacob and Laban look for all kinds of ways to...

“You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve. Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” John 6:67-68 After feeding the 5000, people wanted more food from Jesus. When He did not give them what they...
