Genesis 33 Soap Bible Study
Scripture: Genesis 33
3 Then Jacob went on ahead. As he approached his brother, he bowed to the ground seven times before him. 4 Then Esau ran to meet him and embraced him, threw his arms around his neck, and kissed him. And they both wept.
Much anticipation and humility went into this moment. Not only that Jacob came bowing in respect, but that Esau had placed his best foot forward in forgiveness.
We know not if Jacob sensed that there might be treachery in Seir, but either way this meeting was overall…positive.
Forgiveness can never come too early, usually too late. I refuse to live in the shadow of unforgiveness of others…and as a gift to my children, I will live while forgiving others.
God – help me to focus on your kingdom at hand, and forgive while daylight still shines.
