    July 15: Deceiver To Disciple

                   

    Sometimes sin is our own idea. And sometimes mom leads us into temptation. Rebekah, the “godly” wife of Isaac, is willing to deceive her own husband to steal a blessing for her favorite child. This story shows us that while parents are to be honored, they are not always to be imitated. We are invited to reflect on the spiritual climate of our homes and remember Jesus, who was willing to disobey the mother who tried to stop his Messianic ministry.

    July 8: Impulsive To Heir

                   

    The first story of Jacob is a sad sign of things to come. Despite God’s promise to bless this younger brother, the “heel-grabber” Jacob uses his intelligence to hustle his older brother. What might seem small, however, starts a pattern of behavior that will ruin Jacob’s family and nearly destroy his life. This account warns us of the “small sins” that will become a pattern of something greater. Finally, it serves as a contrast with Jesus, the “older brother” who chose to give up his birthright of blessing to foolish sinners like us.

    The ending of Judges requires an adult I.D. to read. A woman chopped into pieces and mailed throughout Israel? That’s really messed up! But the Spirit inspired this story to prove two points. First, that life falls apart when everyone does what they think is right. Second, that God does not give up on people after the most disgusting sins.
