Tenderness

What could bring more blessedness than the consciousness of God's tender, loving care for all His children; and how often we see this quality of tenderness expressed throughout the Scriptures! In the thirty-third chapter of Genesis we read of the meeting of Esau and Jacob after years of separation brought about by enmity. Then we are told that after his own illumination Jacob saw his brother as though he had seen "the face of God."

Well can one imagine the spiritual uplifting that must have been experienced by the brothers at this time; and yet Jacob did not forget his responsibility, under God's guidance, for we find him expressing tender solicitude for the children and cattle under his care in these words spoken to Esau: "Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant: and I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the children be able to endure."
