Drama. Drama. Drama. Your family may be the stuff of a hit reality TV show, but into every family a little…or a lot… of drama must sometimes fall. That’s the way we humans have been from the very beginning. Take a look at the lives of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob, and Esau in Jacob Armstrong’s newest book, God’s Messy Family. As you meet these “messy” families in the stories in Genesis, you’ll recognize a pattern to their lives: they are called, they mess up, and God continues to redeem them.
In session 5 titled Promise Maker and Promise Keeper, Jacob Armstrong tells the story of Abraham’s son Jacob leaving his home to journey to Haran. He compares how while we can experience broken promises in our lives, God will both make and keep promises.
