Jacob has many faults, but he is committed to serving the Lord. He does set up a place of worship as soon as he enters Canaan, thereby showing his commitment to make God the center of his home. It is also wise today to erect an “altar” of worship and prayer in our homes. If you have a family, be sure to set aside time for devotions with your spouse and children. Whether married or not, make time for private study and praise.
