Scripture Union Daily Guide Friday 24 June 2022 Message
Esau was grieved for losing his blessing and he was determined to revenge (v.41). Do you think his anger was justified? For every setback we suffer, we have our own share of the blame. But on many occasions, we are very quick to blame others instead of finding out where we were wrong. Rebekah quickly took steps to ensure that Esau fails in his plot (vs.42‐46)?
When you sense danger around your family, how do you respond? Isaac and Rebekah contributed greatly to breeding the hatred between the two brothers that had now developed into threat to life. We should be wary of preferential treatment of our children.
It can create permanent hatred among them. Note that the negative situation led to dialogue between the parents which led to clarity, informed decision, and a timely and godly counsel for Jacob about whom to marry (28:1‐5).
However, the bitterness and rivalry in the family would have been avoided had this dialogue happened earlier. How do you see Esau’s decision to go and marry a daughter of Ishmael (vs.8‐9)?
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
• Oh Lord, help me to be sensitive to things happening around me and give me wisdom to respond promptly and appropriately.
Prayer for the week
• Unity among the Christian churches today. Pray against all forms of ungodliness, worldly passions and false teachings. Pray that the fire of God will return to the church so that there will be real and genuine repentance.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Psalms 41:2
