The Genesis (or Beginnings) stories continue, and today we read part of chapter 33.
Now Jacob looked up and saw Esau coming, and four hundred men with him. So he divided the children among Leah and Rachel and the two maids. He put the maids with their children in front, then Leah with her children, and Rachel and Joseph last of all. He himself went on ahead of them, bowing himself to the ground seven times, until he came near his brother.
But Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck and kissed him, and they wept.
Reflection – After many years, Jacob is reunited with his brother Esau. How have you experienced reconciliation? Was it easy or hard? If it was easy, what made it easy? If it was hard, is that relationship still a struggle today?
