My Rebecca-4

Genesis 27:5 “Rebekah was eavesdropping as Isaac spoke to his son Esau. As soon as Esau had gone off to the country to hunt game for his father,”
Genesis 27:6 “Rebekah spoke to her son Jacob. “I just overheard your father talking with your brother, Esau. He said,”
Genesis 27:7 ‘Bring me some game and fix me a hearty meal so that I can eat and bless you with GOD’s blessing before I die.’
Genesis 27:8 “Now, my son, listen to me. Do what I tell you.”
…From yesterday…
1 Samuel 17:26 “David, who was talking to the men standing around him, asked, “What’s in it for the man who kills that Philistine and gets rid of this ugly blot on Israel’s honor? Who does he think he is, anyway, this uncircumcised Philistine, taunting the armies of God-Alive?””(MSG)
David asked, what’s in it for me! That’s the entrepreneur in him talking!
I know if it’s a religious folk that wrote the bible, he’ld remove that part from the bible, but the Holy Spirit kept it there for us to to learn from it! Let me stop there and get back to Esau and Jacob!
Esau legally sold his birthright, and the “entrepreneurial Jacob” bought it. They shook hands and Jacob said “Good doing business with you” (My translation…laughing).
Both parties were satisfied with the outcome of the business; done deal! In actual fact, if we are to blame anybody it should be Esau; that guy “hated being the firstborn”! Hear it:
Genesis 25:32 “And Esau said, Behold, I [am] at the point to die: and what PROFIT shall this BIRTHRIGHT do to me?”
Genesis 25:33 “And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he SOLD his BIRTHRIGHT unto Jacob.”
Genesis 25:34 “Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus ESAU DESPISED [his] BIRTHRIGHT.”
To be continued…
