January 16 "Pilgrimage" Genesis 46-47
Jacob described his life as a "pilgrimage," meaning he was on his way to his real home---heaven. Through all his days, he never lost sight, even in the midst of such sorrow. Genesis 47:9. Conniving brothers are treated differently here. The true meaning of respect for what is right. And Jacob, the patriarch, offers a blessing to the Pharaoh who has saved his life, his family's lives, and his world. May we live in the humble beginnings where Providence has placed us---and not seek to be someone else.
