Love makes a difference. Love is a powerful driving force! Im not talking about the distractions of lusts, but love. We willingly, gladly, joyfully do anything for love. Jacob loved Rachel so much, he gladly worked hard for 7 yrs just to have her. Lust will fade after days! This love goes the distance to achieve the goal. I believe Jacob is a picture of Jesus here toward His church. He completley put the time in for us, lots of difficult days, weary hours, all for us. For the joy set before Him, He endured the cross. You & I are His joy!
Genesis 29:20 So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed only a few days to him because of the love he had for her.
