But it is good for me to draw near to God… Psalm 73:28a

NEW: Love Me

I love GodThe phrase, “love me” occurs nine times in the Bible.  This first time it occurs is in the account of Jacob and his wives. In this account, Jacob is tricked into marrying Leah when he really loved her younger sister Rachel. The Bible tells us in Genesis 29:30 that Jacob loved Rachel more than Leah. Because of this we read:

And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren. – Genesis 29:31 (KJV)

There is one thing that Leah wanted from her husband, Jacob – that he would love her.

(Genesis 29:32) “And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the LORD hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.”
