Jacob testifies of the merciful and persistent manner in which God works with the house of Israel.
“…How merciful is our God unto us, for he remembereth the house of Israel, both roots and branches; and he stretches forth his hands unto them all the day long; and they are a stiffnecked and a gainsaying people; but as many as will not harden their hearts shall be saved in the kingdom of God.” (Jacob 6:4)
-Does God only stretch forth his hands towards the “House of Israel all the day long”? Or, does He reach out continually to all His children on earth?
-If God blesses the earth through the house of Israel, does He reach out to them first and in the most direct manner?
-Why would He focus on specific groups of people in order to bless the inhabitants of the earth in general?
