41 Get out of Jail free

By |

Two years is a long time to sit in prison for a crime you didn’t commit! There’s no need to fear, Super Cows are here! They parachute in and in verse 2; they walk up out of the river to save the day. Verse 14 is a […]

40 Twas the night before

By |

The prisoners were all snug in their beds while visions of sugarplums danced in their heads. Okay, so maybe there were no sugar plums, but there were grapes and the one dude had Twinkies on his head (verse 16).

39 Desperate Housewife = Run Forest Run!

By |

I have always loved the story of Joseph! It’s not because of all the action and fighting and things getting blown up—which is the typical story we find today in our culture. But Joseph’s life story is one of unwavering trust in God. We don’t even have Joseph’s memoirs or many words of praise or […]

38 Warning! Do not read this chapter with small children!

By |

(Ok, just a side note to begin here. God has a funny sense of humor. Several times this year I’ve sat down with my 9th grade daughter at the breakfast table to read through Genesis. So I sit down today and open to Gen 38 and get 1⁄2 way through reading out […]

37 A coat, a Dream, eBay and Some Hubba Bubba

By |

I dream a lot. I vividly remember my dreams and so does my daughter. Sometimes we share what we have dreamt with each other and most of the time our response is the same, “wow that one was really crazy.” She has yet to come and tell me that her sister and our dogs and […]

36 The Black sheep are blessed

By |

Even though Esau and Ishmael were the “black sheep” of the family, God still kept his word to bless Ishmael’s descendants. Here we see a glimpse of that through Basemath. What a great name for a band! Basemath. Well Basemath wasn’t […]

35 Three Funerals & A Birth

By |

I love this call from Jacob to his household to purify themselves. To throw away any false gods that may have inadvertently or deliberately crept into their lives living in Paddan-Aram. Then they buried them under a tree. I wonder if anyone has ever tried to find the old […]

34 Revenge

By |

This chapter is one of the most messed up stories in scripture! There are several, but his is defiantly in the top 10. Genesis chapter 34 is the story of Dinah getting raped and then her brothers getting vengeance on the […]

33 Prepare for Battle!

By |

After a rough night cage fighting an angel, Jacob looks up to see Esau coming at him with his army of 400 men and he begins to prepare for battle. Today when someone says “woman and children first,” it usually is to save them from peril or at a church lunch. Here we see Jacob […]

32 UFC 1

By |

Ok, for the record Jacob is a sissy. So far, he has betrayed his brother and then runs away, gets tricked into marring 2 sisters, tricks his father in law and runs away again. And coming back to meet Esau he sends the women and children out in front […]
