Lessons From Israel: Zebulun

As we continue our journey through the twelve sons of Jacob/Israel we come to Zebulun.  Zebulun was the sixth son of Jacob's first wife.  When he was born his mother Leah said, "God has presented me with a gift and this time my husband will treat me with honor, because I born him six sons."  So Zebulun name means honor in Hebrew.  The blessing he received from his father was somewhat positive it said that he will live by the seashore and become a haven for ships.

Zebulun name teaches us an important life lesson and that is children should bring honor to their parents.  We all are children whether our parents are still alive or not we still bring honor to their name by how we live our lives.  Same is true from the spiritual sense how we live our lives reflects upon the one whom we claim as our Father.  When we live any kind of way we bring shame to the name of Christ.  When we submit our will, our agendas, our desires, our thoughts, etc. and become obedient to HIS will we bring glory/honor to our FATHER in heaven.

So let God's endorsement of you be like Leah endorsement of Zebulun where God can say this is my servant ____________ who delights in glorifying my name.  Now that is a goal worth pursing!!!

Scripture Reference: Genesis 30 and 49

God bless,
