Now Israel loved Joseph more than his other sons because Joseph was a son born to him in his old age, and he made a robe of many colors for him.
Jacob (Israel) loved Joseph because he had a pure heart and was not like his brothers in their self serving ways. A coat of colors was usually worn by royalty, and would prove to be prophetic. Love sees the royalty in others.
~ Pastor Bob
Boomerangs to Arrows
A must read written by my mentor and friend, Sharon Elliott.
In the face of high unemployment rates, rising costs of living, economic recession, and the present generations general malaise, many parents feel obligated to offer prolonged housing and financial assistance to young adult offspring. But as time passes, how can these boomerang children be transformed into arrows loosed from the parental quiver?
Based upon an in–depth study of Psalm 127, Boomerangs to Arrows empowers parents to prepare themselves and their adult children for the time when those kids must be launched into independent, grown-up lives.
