A few days ago as I was reading my Bible I came across Genesis 25:28, "And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob." In this verse it says that Isaac loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob. Sad to say, this happens a lot today. As a parent, it is important to love each of your children with an equal love. You shouldn't favor one child over the rest of them. Jacob experienced this as a child and it caused problems in their family. It also caused problems down the road for Jacob. Look at Genesis 37:3; " Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours." Jacob is now married himself and has twelve sons and one daughter. Jacob turned out just like his parents and in this verse it says that he loved one son, Joseph, more than the rest of his other kids. It also caused problems and Joseph's brothers hated him because of it. We talked about this fact for a while during our devotional time and I hope it helps you in some way to not make the same mistake in your own family.
