Day 9: 25-27
Abraham, Isaac, Keturah, Rebekah, Ishmael, Jacob, Esau
*Abraham had other kids, but gave all (well most) to Isaac. He did give some gifts to concubines wives’ kids.
*Ishmael and Isaac buried him which I found sweet since they didn’t get along very well.
*Isaac said Rebekah was his sister—like his Daddy did, only it wasn’t a lie when his Daddy said it. Runs in the family…
*Isaac became too rich, so the king sent him away.
*THEN Abimelech made a treaty with Isaac because he was so powerful
*Esau married Judith and Basemath (Hittites) and made life miserable for his parents.
*Jacob got his Esau’s inheritance on a scam and a family feud was born. Sure, Esau wasn’t a great son, but Jacob wasn’t perfect either.
Verses that Jumped Out at Me:
25:21—Pray and plead to God for every our most personal requests.
25:32-33—When we see something we want, we automatically want to get it no matter what. Think of the consequences before you give up you birthright for a bowl of soup…
27:11-13—Sin can degrade your character
How did Jacob deceive Isaac?
