“And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying, So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spoke unto him and his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.” (Genesis 50:16-20)
It is unfortunate that Jacob had to instruct his own adult sons to go to Joseph and apologize for what they did. I think that there are many children of second families that need to apologize to the cornerstones of the family.
The children of the first family suffer much. Many are aborted, some are killed, and others are abused and abandoned. But there are some that are fortunate enough to have patient, forgiving, and loving parents that do not let anyone separate their family! We need more parents like these. Save the first family!
Jesus said to his disciples, “Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 10:6-7)
Go to the children of the second family and explain to them the importance of the cornerstones of your family! Put your family back together and demonstrate their importance – your perception will change and you will taste the kingdom of heaven on earth. Every child deserves the love of a mother and a father. Do not let anyone separate your family!
