Genesis 27-28, John 11
Jesus crying is a reminder to me, that pain is not normal… we live in a fallen world. In human form he experiences this with us
Jesus is human. Jesus knew grief. And Jesus knew suffering. It helps me wrap my brain around the fact that He knows all about my pain. There is also a plan in that pain.
It’s so comforting to know Jesus knows grief.
Also, I recently read a post on IG that said something along the lines of taking God’s name in vain isn’t just about using his name as a curse word but is also about using His name when doing things that cause harm to people (I.e. using the Bible to justify slavery). Seeing how Jacob used His name when pretending to be Esau made me think of this!
