Paglalaan: Bakit Mizpah?

Mizpah means “May the LORD keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other.” Taken from the Book of Genesis 31:49. It was the point where Laban and Jacob (Israel) settled their individual differences. It also means “Watch Tower.” It is where they had piled up heap of stones as their demarcation line/boundaries of respective teritories(read the whole chapter Genesis 31) to which Lord God is the witnessed; that no one is allowed to cross each other’s boundaries or to harm each other. It also serves as warning aside from blessing.

The author chose the Biblical Word as a reminder that the Lord is with him always. Also, for the reason that he is away from home and holds God’s promise that He will watch over his family and love ones way back home, thus, MIZPAH.
