Scripture Union Daily Guide Saturday 11 June 2022 MESSAGE
No two families are the same. Every family is unique and each has its own peculiar challenges. What was the challenge in Isaac and Rebekah’s family and how did they handle it (v.21)? Childlessness can be a big problem in African societies because of the value attached to children. And many Christian families are in disarray because they lack knowledge and skills for handling their problems, such as childlessness.
Isaac and Rebekah prayed, and God answered them (vs.21‐23). To where do you run when seeking solution to your family problems? Prayer is the key to tackle all our family problems. Our first point of call, in times of trouble, should be God. Children upbringing is another challenge in families.
Our children are different and we must be mindful of how we handle their uniqueness. What do you think of the way Isaac and Rebekah handled the uniqueness of their children (vs.27‐28)? Read vs.29‐34 again. How do you feel about the attitudes of Esau and Jacob to each other? What effect could this kind of attitudes have on family cohesion?
And so: If you are a parent, decide today to love your children equally in words and in deeds. And if you are single, decide to avoid attitudes that destroy family unity.
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
• Pray for families that are awaiting the blessing of children.
