Heavenly Father, help us to care for others as You do. Help us to show love as You have taught us. How sad You must be when You see family members treat each other with hate. The enemy loves pulling the family apart. It should be our center, but in so many cases family has become like strangers. Help us to show Your love to everyone we encounter and heal those relationships that the enemy has torn apart. Help us to be ones that bring people together in love. Help us to heal and forgive when we’ve been hurt, and to love when we’ve done the hurting so others can forgive us. Thank You Father for the families You have given us and help us be family to those who don’t have family.
In Jesus’ name.

This scripture really shows us the sin-filled hearts of humans. Rebekah used her own flesh and blood to get her way.
Think about families and the anger, resentment, hurt and perhaps withdrawal that can occur in our families today.
If you feel you have been wronged by a family member, is God calling you to forgive and reach out to this person so that the family unit can be made whole once again?
Perhaps this can become a prayer concern for you.

Genesis 27:41-46
41 Now Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him, and Esau said to himself, "The days of mourning for my father are approaching; then I will kill my brother Jacob."42 But the words of Esau her older son were told to Rebekah. So she sent and called Jacob her younger son and said to him, "Behold, your brother Esau comforts himself about you by planning to kill you.43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice. Arise, flee to Laban my brother in Haran44 and stay with him a while, until your brother's fury turns away—45 until your brother's anger turns away from you, and he forgets what you have done to him. Then I will send and bring you from there. Why should I be bereft of you both in one day?"46 Then Rebekah said to Isaac, "I loathe my life because of the Hittite women. If Jacob marries one of the Hittite women like these, one of the women of the land, what good will my life be to me?"
