Jacob begins to take revenge on Uncle Laban. Part 2.
Friday, August 9, 2002
The sheep in that part of the world in those days were basically white and the goats black.
Laban believed that he had destroyed Jacob and tried to make it impossible for Jacob to ever recover and be successful again.
1. Laban shows his own selfish, crafty nature as well as his distrust of Jacob when Laban took out all the goats that would have belonged to Jacob and put them in the care of his sons.
Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes them to live.
Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life.
Love is what is left in a relationship after all the selfishness is taken out.
You can be thoughtful and do all you can to help, or be selfish and think just of yourself.
