A podcast designed to help you engage with the Bible daily! Each day, we begin with a reading assignment, designed to take no longer than a few minutes. Then a few minutes of thoughts, comments and questions follow, to help you more fully engage with the text, and to consider throughout the day or to help you begin journaling.
It's not the intent to be exhaustive in covering everything, or even to tell you what you should think about a given text. The main idea is to give you a starting point to begin thinking through and engaging with the text yourself, whether you a seasoned Bible student, or this is your first time reading the Bible. The reading selections are kept purposefully small, to make it as easy as possible to develop the discipline of regular Bible reading, and more importantly Bible engaging! It also helps make it possible to catch up if you fall behind a few days.
March 6, 2017: Genesis 33
Jacob finally confronts his brother Esau after twenty years. Surprisngly, Esau embraces Jacob and does not intend to kill him. After reluctantly accepting Jacob's gifts, Esau returns home, and Jacob settles in a different area.
Questions to consider:
* Do you think Esau was genuinely happy to see his brother? What do you think made Esau’s attitude change from twenty years ago?
* What do you make of Jacob’s response to Esau? Is Jacob being apprehensive, or is Jacob just trying to be kind?
