Yes, today is about genealogy – Esau’s genealogy (Jacob’s elder brother). This is the last mention of Esau, but do you see how many descendents of Esau survive? He may not have 12 sons, like Jacob, but his descendents grow quite strongly and numerously. They will continue fighting and becoming troubles in the area by opposing Jacob’s descendents in coming time.
I got a cold and can’t see anything in front of me, let alone think straight! God is merciful and gracious on me that he only gave me a list of genealogy to read this morning! Instead of unhappy groaning of my poor attempt to pronouncing these names, I must say I was relived of the shortness of this day’s reading — I feel terrible admitting, but I am glad that God is looking after me!
I hope everyone has a much better day than me!
