“God continues to stand by the promise made, even when the humans don’t necessarily live up to the calling”

Our reading from Genesis continues the complicated family drama of Abraham and his descendants. As we read the story of Jacob and his marriage to Leah and Rachel, what are we to learn? I think this is another example of how God remains faithful to God’s promise, even when the humans involved don’t live up to God’s calling.
