Shortly before his death, Jacob calls his sons around him and blesses them. We see that for many, the consequences of their sin materially affected the blessings they received. We also trace the material blessings as they are given to Joseph, whilst the promise of Messiah is graciously given to Judah. In each case, we look ahead in Scripture to see how the blessing was fulfilled in the particular tribe to which it was given. Parents are urged to ensure they pass on the most important things to their children, and not the values and standards and treasures of this world.
