“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
Genesis 25:29-34 /Genesis 27:1-10
Jacob was named the “Deceiver”, remember grasping his brothers heel at birth. This family had some issues! Parents you favored one more then the other, a son who would sell his future for a bowl of food, the other who would gladly take it all, and a mother who keep the secret, and send her son away to protect him from the other.
WOW! Still God’s plan. HE knew they would choose these things, and HIS greater glory would still shine through them. I am always amazed when looking at this family line, and the fact that God had every bit of it written down for us to know and see, HIS mercy and grace, His plan that can not be stopped. Faithfulness.
Which of these family members gets your attention? Are you amazed at how God makes a plan that would not look anything like the plan we would make? Thoughts?
