Old testament Genesis 47; 13-48; 22
Jacob blessed Joseph’s boys, but opposite of their birth order. Joseph tried to correct his father, but his father said, he knew what he was doing and although both brothers would be great rulers the younger will be greater. Life Lesson; Sometimes tradition is broken and it is meant to be. Birth order, is not a given for blessing.
New Testament. Mathew 16; 21- 17; 13
25”For whoever wants to save his life, will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.”
Life lesson; when we try hard to hold on to the things of this world we become empty and end. When we seek first the kingdom of God we become filled and overflowing with life.
Proverbs 3:1-10 7 “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. 8This will bring health to you body and nourishment to your bones.”
