Good Morning. 

And the words of Esau her older son were told to Rebekah. So she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said to him, “Surely your brother Esau comforts himself concerning you by intending to kill you. Now therefore, my son, obey my voice: arise, flee to my brother Laban in Haran.” (Genesis 27:42-43)

Our choices matter. When we make a certain decision and embark upon a particular path it sets other situations in motion. For instance, Rebekah overheard what Isaac told Esau and so she had Jacob pretend to be Esau in order to obtain Isaac’s blessing. That, in turn, resulted in Esau’s disdain for Jacob and fueled his desire to kill him. That prompted Rebekah to go back to Jacob and warn him of Esau’s intent to make himself feel better by killing his brother. That resulted in Jacob’s self-imposed exile that lasted twenty years.

My point is, our choices prompt others to make choices and not necessarily good ones. That is why it is of the utmost importance to choose wisely and according to Biblical principle. When the Bible says that “There is way that seems right unto a man,” it’s not referring to the world only; that includes you and me. We must be careful about the choices we make today for they will indeed have an impact on our tomorrow.

So again we are reminded not to lean upon our understanding but are to rely upon our Heavenly Father to lead and to guide us by His Spirit. If we ask Him for this will He not answer us? If we ask for a fish, He doesn’t give us a serpent — He willingly leads our life in the way of righteousness and blessing. So, today, let us pray and meditate upon the situation before acting; it might save us a lot of heartache.

Blessings and Shalom,
