Isaac had twins. Esau was the elder and Jacob the younger. Esau was a noble man. An example of machismo. He hunted, trapped and loved the outdoors. He was a father’s dream.
Jacob preferred his mum’s company. Preferred to hunt in the kitchen. A domesticated sissy?
Jacob valued the birthright. He knew it’s spiritual implications. Esau was gruff and rough about everything. Including the birthright.
He lost it. Traded it for convenience. For a meal. He could not comprehend its significance. Jacob bought it and sold it not.
The Word of God is our birthright. Don’t sell out for money, popularity or pleasures.
