Something to Marinate on!


One of my favorite groups is Outcast, and my favorite Outcast CD is Aquemini. In the song, SpottieOttieDopaliscious, from the Aquemini CD, Andrew states  "Marinate on that," meaning that he wants you to ponder on what he just said.

Andrew from the group Outcast!

So, I was doing my Bible readings from Genesis, and I was reading about Jacob, Rachel, and Leah. I'm going to give you the cliff notes version of their story.

Jacob saw Rachel and wanted to marry her, but her father told him that he needed to work for him for seven years in order to marry Rachel. So, Jacob worked for seven years, but Rachel's father gave Jacob Leah at the end of seven years instead of Rachel; in this culture, he needed to have his oldest daughter married first. So, after a week of being married to Leah, Jacob was able to marry Rachel, but he had to work for Leah and Rachel's father for seven more years. The bible states that "Jacob loved Rachel so much more than he loved Leah."

Here are some words that I want you to marinate on:
Genesis 29:19........"So Jacob worked seven years to pay for Rachel. But his love for her was so strong that it seemed to him but a few days." (What you won't do, do for love!)
Genesis 29:32......"So Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son........And now my husband will love me." 
Genesis 29:...."Then she (Leah) became pregnant a third time and gave birth"..... "Surely this time my husband will feel affection for me, since I have given him three sons!" (Really Leah?)
Marinate on these words and share your thoughts please!

I had to leave you with SpottieOttieDopaliscious by Outcast!
