Start each day by reading the passages listed above. Then use the summary and reflection provided here to guide discussion around the daily reading.

Jacob was the younger son of Isaac and twin brother of Esau. God changed this deceiver’s name to Israel, and he inherited the promises made to his father and grandfather. The descendants of Jacob’s twelve sons became known as the tribes of Israel, with each tribe bearing the name of one of Jacob’s sons or grandsons.

What aspects of Jacob’s story do you connect or resonate with?

    i understand Jacob the most when he made his father dinner and got blessed before his twin brother, Esau because he didn’t want to feel like he was in the background of things anymore because he wasn’t the hunter or didn’t provide much for his family like Esau did.
