THE BIRTHRIGHT


Mess of Pottage

Genesis 25:31-34 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.

And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he swore unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

This story reminds one of the shrinking birthright of every American citizen.

Daily we become a more failure driven nation.  Failure is being rewarded and is becoming the desirable norm. Those who ply this trade with the support of the political leaders have grown into a strong voting block that certain politicians cater to.

Then there is the myth that has been propagated that immigration is profitable, and a nation building exercise - - when in reality it requires the citizens to submit themselves to more governmental control. If in fact immigration is a great thing then why try to stop anyone at the border and cause them sneak in??

There may come a day when the people will open their eyes and realize that the political system that is forced upon us has become dictatorial and has redefined freedom to mean what they tell us that it is.

The bread and pottage enjoyed by Esau had the effect of making him hate his birthright so also does those who espouse failure.
