Day 27 – Genesis 27

While we remember that Esau was rejected because he first rejected the blessing, we must not think that Jacob was selected because there was any worthiness in him. For he had none. Doesn't it make us realize how much Jacob owed God! It was grace alone. What a group of failing people in this chapter. Isaac may have been pretending he was dying for he lived another 40 years. His appetite led him into trouble. Surely not the thoughts that would fill the mind of a godly man (verse 4). Rebekah's actions cannot be excused. One trouble leads to another.
