What Inspires You?

There are times in my life where I just want to express my
joy through creativity.
In my Sunday School Class, we are currently studying the book, Weird, by Craig Groeschel.
He spoke about Esau giving up his birthright
for a bowl of red stew.
To the casual reader, one might think SO WHAT......it is just a birthright.
When you study deeper, you learn that the birthright is a bit
more than what it means in today's world.

Esau traded the ultimate for the immediate pleasure of red stew.
Esau could have been the one who was blessed by Isaac, son of Abraham.
Esau could have been the one that carried the line
straight to Jesus.
Abraham, Isaac and Esau......
It was more than a birthright.
It is ALWAYS more than the immediate satisfaction.
Instead, Jacob got to carry on the birthright.
If you don't let God use you, He WILL find someone else.
Are you trading a bowl of red stew for something that will later be meaningless?
What are you trading for the Ultimate?

So very true Traci! I like the thought provoking question... what are you trading for the ultimate? That really makes you think about it deeper, rather than just acting on impulse.
