    DAY TWO

    1. Read Genesis 30:1-24. What was Rachel's trouble, and how did she decide to deal with it?

      Rachel fell into the same impatient trap that Sarah had. Her maidservant did indeed bear two sons, Dan and Naphtali, and Rachel felt a temporary sense of vindication. The animosity between the sisters continued however. Once Leah became barren she did the same thing as Rachel and gave her maidservant to Jacob. From this union came two more sons, Gad and Asher.

    2. At this point Rachel and Leah were both barren. Who furnished Leah with mandrakes? (Gen. 30:14)

      Mandrakes were a root used in ancient times as an aphrodisiac. It is known today that this root has a relaxing effect on the womb.

    3. What was the negotiation regarding the mandrakes in verses 14-15? Did it work in producing a child for Rachel?

    4. What occurred for Leah after this, and what was her hope from verse 20?

    5. Describe the LORD's blessing to Rachel.



    LESSONS AND APPLICATIONS

    1. God's hand holds the barrenness and blessedness of the womb. How has God touched your bearing of children physically and spiritually? (Psa. 139:1-16)

    2. Man's means of fertility is void apart from God. In what area of your home life are you less than fertile today?

    3. It is God who blesses the people of the earth. What has God blessed you with today? Have you thanked Him?
