Genesis 30:9–13 (ESV)

Jacob’s Children

When Leah saw that she had ceased bearing children, she took her servant Zilpah and gave her to Jacob as a wife. 10 Then Leah’s servant Zilpah bore Jacob a son. 11 And Leah said, “Good fortune has come!” so she called his name Gad. 12 Leah’s servant Zilpah bore Jacob a second son. 13 And Leah said, “Happy am I! For women have called me happy.” So she called his name Asher.

 

 

Spending part of my life on a cattle ranch, Jacob reminds me of a bull.  Our ranch was small, but there was one bull for about 70 head of cattle.  I wonder if he woke up with a smile on his face and saying: “Ladies, let’s get to work!!  Please forgive my sense of humor.  What we are reading is the building up of the Tribe of Israel.  God works through our short-falls.  Thank the Lord that He is forgiving.

 

I pray: O Lord, again I pray to help me walk according to your ways.  I know I fall short and I am a sinner.  Forgive me and use me to carry out your will.  I repent and want to do better.  Amen!
