Jacob and Esau were twins. The contest between them was for the leadership of Issac's extended family. Which one would become sheik when father died? Esau was in Disfavor for choosing a wife unrelated to the family. To make sure Jacob didn't repeat the mistake, his parents sent him away to live with an uncle. Filled with thoughts of inheriting his father's position, Jacob had his famous dream. God was smiling on him. When Jacob returned years later with his own family and flocks, father Issac was still alive. And Esau, well established in his own right, offered no resistance to Jacob's inheritance. One of the finest of ancient stories is the reunion of the two brothers in Genesis 32 and 33.
When can we put stock in our dreams?
How can we make our dreams come true?
PRAYER: Put in our minds, dear Lord, noble thoughts and worthwhile desires. Let them not die in our minds, but cause us to work for their attainment.- AMEN!
