Genesis 27

In Genesis 25, the scheming Jacob tricked his hungry brother into selling him his birthright, which Esau was all too willing to do. In Genesis 27, the deceiver once again steals something from Esau – his firstborn blessing. (You may want to study the interesting topics of birthright and blessing in a Bible dictionary.) Jacob does so by pretending to be Esau to his blind and hungry father. While Jacob’s deceptions are morally wrong, God uses these sins of Jacob to give Jacob what was in His plan all along. More about this will be shared tomorrow.
