[Of Special Interest to Children]
Jacob was a man of Bible days. A right understanding of many things he did, helps to make us better and happier. Most of the time he followed the leading of good, not error. When he did wrong, he was sorry and tried to do better thereafter. Thus he grew in spiritual understanding and power.
Once, after he had done something wrong, he was sent from his home to Laban, his mother's brother. Laban lived in a faraway land. Jacob must have been sorry to go so far away from his mother and father, whom he loved. It seemed to him that he was leaving his home and even his God. In those days people did not understand that God is Love, and that He is everywhere present.
On his journey to Laban, Jacob came to a place which he called Bethel. He stayed there for a night, and made for himself a pillow of the stones of the place. It was a hard pillow, but as he lay on it his thought went out to God. He had a dream in which he saw a ladder reaching to heaven, and on the ladder were angels going up and down. This dream must have given him a new thought about God and His angels. When thought ascends to divine Love, angel thoughts always come to meet our human needs.
