Womb Wars… Battle of the Babies

Today’s passage reads more like the commentary of a ping-pong match. If you had difficulty keeping up with the score, here are the results: 
Leah: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Gad, and Asher (through Zilpah), daughter Dinah, Issachar, Zebulun
Rachel: Dan and Naphtali (through Bilhah), Joseph, and later Benjamin
In spite of jealousy and discontentment running rampant in this dysfunctional family, God continues. He never loses focus, never breaks a promise, and this time we see His plan prevail as Jacob fathers the twelve tribes.
Father, I want to live my life in line with Your Word so You are not constantly working in spite of me. Let my heart focus on Your promises and find fulfillment in You instead of harboring feelings of jealousy or discontentment towards others. It is not more that I need. I need You. Amen.
