Genesis 37:3-4 - 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. But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him and could not speak peaceably to him.
And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.
Have you ever known parents that favor one child over another? And have you ever known that situation to turn out well in that family? We've got a number of examples in scripture of that happening and it never turns out well. As matter of fact, in Genesis chapter 37 we read, When his brothers, Joseph's brothers, saw that their father loved Joseph more than all his brothers. They hated him and could not speak peaceably to him. Parents treat your children with love. Do not show partiality. Love all of them equally. Love them with the love of God and do what is right by your children.
