Jacob & the Blessing


Jacob Deceiving Others & Being Deceived by Others (Sowing & Reaping)

Today’s Reading:

One of our verses today talks about how we reap what we sow. Jacob tricked others and was then tricked himself. “Reap what you sow” is also true for doing good deeds. Give it a try! For example: In a drive- thru at Starbucks or a fast food restaurant, pay for the person behind you. Watch and see if you reap good back.

Questions:

  1. Whose idea was it to trick Isaac? What did she tell Jacob to do? Do you think parents struggle with making good choices as much as kids?
  2. How did Jacob convince Isaac that he was Esau?
  3. Where did Jacob go to escape his brother’s anger? How was Jacob deceived by his uncle?
  4. What kinds of things do you sow in your life? Are you kind, forgiving, generous, impatient, angry or a tattler? Do you find yourself “reaping” similar attributes or different? Explain.
