Genesis 25 shows us that God has been faithful to His promises given to Abraham. In Genesis 25, Abraham dies at 175 years of age and is buried in the only property he owned here on earth, his family tomb. The son of promise, Isaac, has been born. In fact, he is grown and married and has twin sons named Jacob and Esau. These brothers competed for everything their entire lives. I commented on Facebook about an event from Genesis 25 illustrating that reality when I wrote:
“Reading the story of Esau giving up his birthright for some stew. Asking my Heavenly Father if I ever give up my heavenly birthright for such temporary earthly pleasures.”
Abraham and his family are extremely flawed. Yet, God’s plan to work through them and bless the world will not be stopped. If God can use them, He certainly can use us.
