“For truly to see your face is like seeing the face of God…'” Genesis 33:10
Jacob meets this brother after years of running, lies and fear. And he find in his brother the sweetest of responses.
It is something Jacob seeks. It is something Esau gives. It is a gift.
Nothing in the story tells us if Esau second-guessed, thought it over or regretted it afterward. He simply gave it.
It’s a gift that points us to Christ, in whom we are forgiven, free and right with God.
Let us pray: In you, O Lord, I put my trust. Amen.
