Lessons from Jacob Cover
Trickery has been part of man's DNA since the beginning of time. Jacob was the original con man who committed the offense known as "Identity Theft". We know that Jacob was a good man, but he had some ways that were less than upright and God worked through that to accomplish His divine purpose. Along with a cast of characters around him ...his daddy Isaac, his momma Rebekah, and his twin brother Esau all acted in deceitful ways. But here's the thing...God knows how to clean up what was messed up!

This is one debt we must carry to grave with us. We've got to love one another to debt.
