There are moments in reading scripture and in our daily lives where the questions can often tell us more than the answers. With this in mind, I pose the following questions regarding Genesis 32:22-31 which we will be looking at in Bible Study on Thursday as well as in worship this weekend.
1. Why do you think God let Jacob wrestle?
2. Why do you think God wrenched Jacob's hip?
3. Have you had a struggle in your life that really helped you to grow? Do you still have a limp?
4. What do you think is the significance of Jacob's name change?
In the midst of things in our lives that we cannot begin to understand, may God give us the strength to keep wrestling, the willingness to trust, and the capacity to love and forgive others. See you in church!
