Playing Favorites

Today’s reading: Genesis 37:1-4

As wise and good a man as Jacob (Israel) had developed into, he wasn’t perfect. Just like you and me, he had his shortcomings. We see one of those shortcomings as we turn to the storyline of Joseph in Genesis 37.

Israel had sons with several wives, and while he loved his sons, he didn’t love them all to the same degree. Genesis 37:3 tells us that Israel loved Joseph, the son of his favored wife Rebekah, more than his other sons. And his favoritism was evident, such as when he made Joseph a special multi-colored robe. As you can imagine, Joseph’s preferential treatment didn’t sit well with his brothers. In fact, it caused them to hate him.

What do these few verses reveal about the dangers of playing favorites—as a parent, teacher, leader, or boss? How do you deal with and what helps you control feelings of anger and/or jealousy when you aren’t treated the same as someone else? Tami

The Art of taking your surroundings and creating masterpieces.

मेरे अनकहे अल्फाज

लफ्जों की दास्ताँ....

Rose Hymn

" 'Be faithful in all your exercises of piety and virtue; be always resigned; be satisfied, in the superior part of your soul, to taste, without relish, the contentment of doing God's will. Thus after the winter the spring will come, with its flowers, and you will hear the voice of the turtle-dove in this land." - St. Paul of the Cross

no place is really my home. images, sound memories, clouds, sunset, cats, separation, stories, window, scarifices, melody, silence, air and nothing at all. no judgement here.
