Today's Scripture: "And the stones shall have the names of the sons of Israel, twelve according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, each one with its own name; they shall be according to the twelve tribes." Ex 28:21

What does a writer do when he is coming off several weeks of intense writing? Why he dreams up another work and writes down his dream before he forgets. Will he do it or add the index card to his list of things to do that seemingly never get done? I bring it up because this new work is about family, not parents and siblings, but those who comprise Jesus' family called the church.
Twelve is a lot of children in one family. At one time in America that might not have seemed odd, but today a family numbering over three is considered extraordinary. Having four daughters myself I am familiar with intrafamily issues but I can't relate to three times that number of all boys. There must have been issues between brothers for sure, and we know of a few. But because of their fathers blessing, they inherited his Jewish privilege in this life and the next. We, the church, as Jesus' blood brothers, stand to inherit greater Sonship privilege in this life and beyond.
Thank You, God, for family, a place of belonging and growing.
