In Genesis 27:46 Rebekah reminds Isaac of the need to keep the bloodline pure and she pushes Isaac to do the right thing by providing the leadership and instruction a father is supposed to provide to his son, Jacob. This is something that Isaac had failed miserably at in the past. The proof of this is in the past and continuing errors in Esau’s life choices. By doing this Rebekah is also reminding Isaac of his importance in God’s plan; to build a Nation that God will use to bless all nations. The value of their lives is zero apart from God and His plan.
*Let’s take a minute with that thought and apply it to our own lives.
What is God’s plan for your life? Are you trying to follow that plan? Or are you finding your worth and value in other things? If you choose to ignore God’s plan for you, how will that effect the people you love, and even others you don’t even know yet?
