Observation

What kind of reception was Jacob expecting from Esau? What kind did he receive?

Application

Do I hold grudges, or respond with forgiveness?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in heaven, Thank You that Esau forgave Jacob and the brothers were restored. More than that, thank You for the forgiveness that is in Jesus, which restores me with You! Help me to extend forgiveness to others. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Chris & DeAnn Smith (Sasha, Noah, Gavin, Natalie)
  • Janet Sonnenberg
  • Dave & Debbie Spears
  • Justin & Bonnie Wilkerson (Janae, Jordan)
