A Pictorial Devotion

" Jacob looked up and there was Esau, coming with his four hundred men; so he divided the children among Leah, Rachel and the two maidservants. He put the maidservants and their children in front, Leah and her children next, and Rachel and Joseph in the rear. He himself went on ahead and bowed down to the ground seven times as he approached his brother.

But Esau ran to meet Jacob and embraced him; he threw his arms around his neck and kissed him. And they wept.
Then Esau looked up and saw the women and children. “Who are these with you?” he asked.

Jacob answered, “They are the children

God has graciously given your servant.” Genesis 33: 1-5.

Read this short story from the Bible to your child, however young or old he or she is. Then look deeply into your child’s eyes and say, “You are the child the Lord has so graciously given me. I love you and God loves you.”

Don’t let anyone fool you that doing devotions is complicated or difficult. Enjoy your weekend with your family.
