A moment of Great Power
The story of Jacob and Esau ends with a powerful moment: a moment of reconciliation. Jacob begs for Esau’s forgiveness, and Esau forgives him. Esau did not hold a grudge against his brother. Jacob must have felt tremendous relief after intense experience that both brothers cried as they hugged other. Their relationship was healed.
Are you more like Jacob who needed forgiveness? Or are you more like Esau who needed to forgive? Is there a relationship in your life that needs healing? Pray for the courage to let go of your grudges. Pray for the virtue of humility. Ask god to make your heart ready for a moment of great power. Genesis 33:1-11
