Bible verse of the day 21

Let us look today at Genesis 29:25:” When morning came, there was Leah! So Jacob said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? I served you for Rachel, didn’t I? Why have you deceived me?

I guess some of you do not know what the idea of the extract is. You need to read the entire chapter to understand better. The thing is that Jacob had served to Laban for his daughter Rachel for seven years. However, when the time came Laban deceived Jacob by giving him not Rachel, but his oldest daughter Leah. 

What do we learn from this? We learn that eternal law of sowing and reaping does work. What you sow you shall also reap. Jacob deceived his brother Esau two times. He sowed deceit. Now he is reaping it himself. And he will reap even more of it. What about the blessing that he stole from his brother by deceiving Isaac. It did not really work. For twenty years Jacob was working very hard till he finally (by the miracle of God) started prospering. 

He would later fight with God to be blessed again! So, what kind of seeds are you sowing? Be careful about it. God bless you.
