Every family has a story. And for most families that story is dysfunctional in some way. One example of that is found in Jacob’s family. As his 12 sons are born, their names tell a story of heartache and hope. And in the families growing dysfunction, if we pay attention, it is obvious that God is working even in their conflict and sin to write a better story than they could ever imagine. So it can be with us. If we can learn to trust God, he can rewrite our story into one of grace and beauty.
