Family Reunion

Today's reading: Genesis 33:1-20

The account of the reuniting of Jacob and Esau is one of my favorites. Every time I read it, my heart is moved by the reconciling of two brothers who have been separated and at-odds with each other for many, many years. This story is rich with lessons about and examples of repentance, humility, forgiveness and reconciliation. But what stood out most prominently to me today was God's goodness to both Jacob and Esau, and His faithfulness to heal and restore this family in spite of their ugly and painful past.

What did you learn or see from this account about reconciliation? What about the importance of family? How would you describe the condition of relationships within your immediate and extended families? Would you ask God to help you restore relationships where needed? Tami
