Now therefore, come, let us make a covenant, you and I, and let it be a witness between you and me.” So Jacob took a stone and set it up as a pillar. Then Jacob said to his brethren, “Gather stones.” And they took stones and made a heap, and they ate there on the heap.
-Jacob & Laban made a bilateral covenant on the mountains of Gilead. This was a reconciliatory pact since Jacob had fled with his family & possessions without bidding Laban farewell which got him worried & furious at the same time. Jacob set a pillar & heap of stones which stood as witnesses that no one could cross to each others side to cause harm. These were memorial witnesses as the heap was named & a sacrifice of peace offered there to seal the covenant. Ultimately, Laban recognised God as the witness given that neither of the parties would be fully present at that place to guard the other. In the call to love one another, we should reconcile & forget our differences in the quest for peace & unity.
Lord our Father we humbly beseech You to fill us with Your peace. You have call us to love one another, we ask for Your love & humility. Help us to forgive those who offend us that we may reconcile & make peace with each other. Heal all our wounds, deliver us from our burdens & all forms of heaviness that we harbor in our hearts. Father, we humbly ask You to cover us with Your precious blood that we may be free from everything that hinders us from accessing Your mercy, blessing & grace. We praise You & glorify Your holy name. Amen
