Proper 11/Ordinary 16, 2014 – Genesis 28:13-14

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Genesis 28:13-14And the LORD stood beside Jacob and said, “I am the LORD, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your offspring; and your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you and in your offspring.

I have only seen dust storms in Hollywood movies, but it is not far fetched to think that Jacob had witnessed the enormity of a dust storm in his lifetime. For Jacob, the idea that his family would spread like a dust storm would be very descriptive of God’s amazing covenant.

Trusting God, help us as we minister to others today. Magnify our gifts in ways that bless those for whom we care. Amen.
