Jacob Vows Not to Send Benjamin  

Genesis 42:35-38 NRSV

But he said, “My son shall not go down with you, for his brother is dead, and he alone is left. If harm should come to him on the journey that you are to make, you would bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to Sheol.” Genesis 42:38

In what ways do you think Jacob needed healing regarding the life and memory of Joseph?

*Today, on the 57th anniversary of the bombing of the 16th Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, pray for the strength of those who still cry out for justice in the streets of a divided nation.
