What the Bible Says About Parenting: Jacob, Joseph, and Playing Favorites

We need the Holy Spirit, and we need the gospel, to transform us into the kind of people whose love and affection for other people is not in response to what they do for us.

Looking at Genesis 37, Cameron and Anna discuss the pain that favoritism causes in families. When parents demonstrate partiality, everyone suffers. By God’s grace, we can learn to treat all our children with equity and love.
