The Blessing of Jacob's Flocks

Vision And Works

Sermonette; #1036s; 16 minutes
Given 12-Mar-11

Description: (hide)

David Grabbe, reflecting on an obscure incident in the life of Jacob, in which his selective breeding practices involving peeled rods which caused the birth of speckled livestock as his wages, explains that some have considered the process scientific while others considered it superstition. Regardless of the explanation, a miracle from God ensured Jacob's blessings to counter his father-in-law's trickery and chicanery. God engineered the entire process, guaranteeing Jacob special favor. We will ensure similar blessings upon ourselves if we emulate the behavior of Christ, Who has emulated the Father for us. Like Jacob, we must conform to the will of God before we have success.
