REFLECTION


God Blesses His Family

by Jennifer Jerrome


Family is a funny thing. It’s the people we love the most and often appreciate the least. Each family is unique, and God loves to put all kinds of personalities together. That’s just what Jacob’s family was like.

  • Rueben – commander

  • Simeon & Levi – aggressors

  • Judah – ruler

  • Zebulun – shelter

  • Issachar – laborer

  • Dan – enforcer

As children of God, we bring our different personality traits to the table, and He uses our strengths and weaknesses for His good. Like the number of birds in the air and fish in the sea, God makes each of us with intention. We are not mistakes.


And while we may struggle at times with our identity and purpose, we are each necessary in the family of God. We will not be overlooked even when we feel invisible to those closest to us. Everyone has a role to play, so let’s explore our God-given abilities and use them along with our brothers and sisters to the benefit of His kingdom.
