    WOMEN OF FAITH
    FROM BARRENNESS TO BLESSEDNESS


    WEEK THREE

    Rachel and Leah


    INTRODUCTION

    How are you doing? Have the first three weeks given you some food for your heart and mind to feast on? This week we'll look at two more women who were involved in the awesome work of God in the family history of Israel.

    Last week we saw how Rebekah sent away her dear son, Jacob, out of fear that Esau would attempt to kill him. Now we'll watch Jacob's story and study the women God gave him who would build the nation of Israel. In all there were four women who impacted his life after his mother, Rebekah. Let's see what this story can teach us for our own lives.


    DAY ONE

    1. Read Genesis 29:1-12, and tell how Rachel and Jacob met.

    2. From Genesis 29:1-20, describe Rachel and Leah.
      Rachel:
      Leah:

    3. Summarize the events of Jacob's wedding day from Genesis 29:21-30. What happened on the seventh day of the wedding feast? (give verse)

    4. In Genesis 29:31 we are told, "Now the LORD saw that Leah was unloved and He opened her womb, but Rachel was barren." What does this verse tell you about God?

    5. From Genesis 29:32-35 and 30:17-20, list Leah's sons and explain her thoughts as she gave birth to each one.

    6. After Leah gave birth to Judah, how did her focus change?



    LESSONS AND APPLICATIONS

    1. God looks at the heart. Beware of only observing the outside features of a person. What does God see inside you today? (Psa. 19:14)

      Who have you chosen to like or dislike because of their outward appearance, ethnic background, or religious belief?

    2. True contentment can only come through God. Can you relate in any way to Leah's situation of feeling unloved? (Gen. 29:35; 1 Tim. 6:1-10)

      Can you, like Leah, say "This time I will praise the Lord"?
