Today’s Bible Reading: Genesis 29 – 30

“Now when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said to Jacob, “Give me children, or else I die!” And Jacob’s anger was aroused against Rachel, and he said, “Am I in the place of God, who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb?”” Genesis 30:1-2 (NKJV)

Bible Reading for January 11:  Genesis 31 – 32

In the time of Rachel, and Jacob, having children was the blessing of the Lord on them.  To Rachel not having a child was a curse.  She would rather be dead than not bear a child.

For the Christian today; our desire should be to be a fruitful witness for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and “bear children” in the faith to His glory.

My prayer, and yours ought to be to our Lord; “Give me children, lest I die”.

Forgive me Lord for my lack of passion for the lost to be saved.
