Jacob was a schemer from the very beginning. He wrestled in the womb. Jacob even wrestled God, and his entire life was marked by manipulation, striving, planning, plotting, and working for something to satisfy his soul, and secure his blessing. Eventually he found it, but not in any of the places he first looked.
Jacob’s life is much like ours. Many of our stories are filled with a relentless pursuit of satisfaction and blessing. We all look for meaning, purpose, and worth, scheming to get what we want, not realizing that in the gospel we find what we long for. In this series we explore lessons of faith and grace in the life of Jacob.
