Set your house in order
The children of Israel were journeying still from Padanaram and God had instructed Jacob to come and meet him in Bethel. Before doing so, Jacob declared all should cast away their idols and remove the strange images. They all gave them to him and he placed them under a tree and carried on journeying. Jacob was a head in his home and took the necessary actions needed to protect his family.
Household leaders need to make the right key decisions which will keep their families safe. Some people leverage their family’s safety, in order to strive for something they shouldn’t be reaching for. God continued to bless him as he was faithful (reminding him of the same covenant he had given to his two predecessors).
Don’t just allow people to deter you or your family, keep them safe…
