A Naked Alien: Keeping a Man
This is from today's reading on my YouVersion Bible app.What do we do in hopes of being loved?
When the LORD saw that Leah was unloved, he opened her womb; but Rachel was unable to have children. Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben because she said, "The LORD saw my harsh treatment, and now my husband will love me." She became pregnant again and gave birth to a son. She said, "The LORD heard that I was unloved, so he gave me this son too," and she named him Simeon. She became pregnant again and gave birth to a son. She said, "Now, this time my husband will embrace me, since I have given birth to three sons for him." So she named him Levi. She became pregnant again and gave birth to a son. She said, "This time I will praise the LORD." So she named him Judah. Then she stopped bearing children. (Genesis 29:31-35 CEB)
Notice that when Judah was born, Leah finally put her hope in God instead of her loveless marriage.
