It’s important to grasp the contemporary issues within this chapter because Jacob’s decisions on the road of life are just like ours! We’ve seen a man engage in family drama, pressure, strife, manipulating. The very actions, attitudes, & emotions we wrestle with. Commentators say that Jacob is a great picture of just being human! I think he’s a perfect display because his encounter with God leads to change! I believe the same thing happens in our lives too. God patiently transforms us thru the trials of life as we look to Him for help.
