    First Born are always rejected. Second Born are accepted and Blessed. Picture of us and Our Salvation. We must be Born-again.

    God favour Jacob over Esau. But all the main people in this story tried to overrule God's plan by their own plans. God is sovereign and His way is sure and will rule in the end. Everyone pays for their deception in the end. Esau loses his birthright and blessing. Rebekah loses Jacob because she gets him cheat and jJacob has to flee because he went along with his mother and cheated His brother.

    End of Daily Bible Reading for this day. Join in. I like to read along as I listen to the audio version. Being an heir is important. Being a co-heir is what believers should strive to be. The firstborn son was important because of the birthright attached to it, but Esau didn't see it that way. To him the birthright only had value if he could use it for his own purpose: not for God or family.

    Verses 28-30: Esau had sold his birthright earlier to Jacob so when he received the blessing from Isaac, it was rightfully his to receive.

    All the events that happened in this chapter was because of the Isaac. It was made clear before the birth of the twins that elder will serve the younger. Isaac was well aware that God has chosen Jacob but he chose Esau on the ground of food. Isaac became a carnal believer because he tried to change the decision of God. This rebellion upon the Word of God is the reason for those evil deeds.
