Many of the stories in Genesis are difficult reading. But, still we read them because we learn about the character of God by observing God’s behavior in relationship with God’s people. And if we’re honest, we often struggle with what we see. But that is what faith is about. It is looking honestly and carefully at these challenging stories and then trusting there is a larger story, a meaning, a plan. God is complex. Never simple. Never manageable. He is a God to be reckoned with, taken seriously, trusted, and worshiped.
