33. FAVORITISM WITHIN A FAMILY IS ALWAYS TROUBLESOME.
Genesis 37:3 – “Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age. Also he made him a tunic of many colors.”
A special coat and preferential treatment? Couldn’t Jacob see the foolishness of such and the effect it had on the brothers? The family dynamic Jacob created led to a lot of pain when he lost Joseph for twenty years.
