Genesis 30

Main idea
Family dysfunction continues, Leah and Rachel in rivalry for Jacob's love, trying to obtain it through children.  Laban cheats Jacob again; Jacob learns shrewd diligence instead of cheating, and prospers.

How is this about Jesus?
We do not earn God's love by our works, children, etc.  God freely loves us in Christ.
The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is life.

Sins this may reveal:
Trying to earn the favor of others in a craven fashion.
Malice in trying to "one-up" siblings, co-workers, etc.
