Demonstrating Reconciliation for our Children


Summary: After many years have passed, Jacob returns to apologize to his brother Esau. Jacob’s son, Joseph, saw this happen and is influenced to offer the same forgiveness to his brothers. How we respond to conflict as adults is greatly determined by how we saw conflict handled by the adults in our lives when we were children.

Real Life Story: A granddaughter is moved as she witnesses a genuine exchange of hurt, forgiveness and reconciliation between her grandparents.

Scripture Reference: Genesis 33 & 45 Jacob comes from a flawed family and builds his own flawed family.
