So Esau bore a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him; and Esau said to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob.” Genesis 27:41
Esau was deeply wounded and very angry about the loss he suffered at the hands of his deceiving brother. He bore a grudge alright. But in the end he would forgive. Ironically, his brother Jacob was always very unsure and fearful of Esau.
Is there anyone that has suffered loss because of my deceitfulness? Am I bearing a grudge because I lost something I should have gained? Or am I free from these? Right now, I feel relatively free. I do have a couple of unfinished commitments.
Lord, thank you that You never run out of blessings. Even though Isaac could only give one, you have an endless supply. Help me be a blessing and complete all commitments.
