Leah: The Unloved Mother

Leah:  The Unloved Mother

When Jacob ran away he went to his Uncle Laban’s house. When Jacob got there he fell madly in love with Laban’s daughter, Rachel. Jacob agreed to work for Laban for seven years to be allowed to marry Rachel. When the time came, Laban gave his daughter to marry Jacob. However, Laban tricked Jacob. Instead of marrying Rachel he had Jacob marry her older sister Leah. Jacob was very angry but agreed to work for another seven years to marry Rachel as well.

Everyone knew that Jacob loved Rachel more than Leah. Leah was sad that her husband loved her sister more than he loved her. However, God saw Leah and her sadness and blessed her with many children. God loved Leah even when others did not and chose to make her part of the promised Son’s family.
