Hello! I’m getting married in a month so no blogs will be happening for the next few weeks. Please feel free to come to the blog and see the show notes and verses each week though! Also, Susan would like to hear any questions you have. In the coming months, we will try to have an additional segment where we discuss and try to answer what other questions listeners leave for us. So if that’s you, make sure to leave a comment on the blog below.
A Comparison of Jacob’s Sin and Jacob’s Consequences

|Deception||Jacob deceived Isaac to get the blessing||Jacob was deceived into marrying Leah|
|Patience||Jacob didn’t wait for God to deliver the promise||Jacob was forced to work 14 years for Rachel|
|Greed||Jacob made an unfair bargain with Esau birthright for stew||Jacob had his wages unfairly changed by Laban|
