Pentecost 10 – Jacob had two wives, Rachel and Leah. He loved Rachel and favoured her son Joseph; but with Leah his marriage was loveless, and he paid little attention either to her or to the rest of his chidren. Joseph became self-opinionated and overbearing, and his siblings hated him for it. There resulted a family tragedy, from a father not caring for a mother and her children. We must not destroy people by telling them they are useless when they are valuable; or stupid when they are smart; or failures when they are successful. God loves each of us; we are here for a reason; and God has more faith in us than we have in ourselves. By meditating on this, we might turn intention into deed and become the person God meant us to be.
Genesis 37: 1-4, 12-28
