Genesis 25:19-34
Frank Ramirez
There are situations of inequality between us as individuals. How do we treat each other equally when we are not equals in different ways?

No question, though Jacob and Esau are twins, they’re not equals. Esau was stronger, and better equipped to live as a hunter/gatherer. Jacob may be more intelligent when it comes to being a game player, but in some ways, he is not as emotionally intelligent when it comes to treating his father and brother as real people.

One autumn, a young man aiming for the seminary left home to complete his college degree. When he returned in the spring, his parents had gone into the chicken-for-eggs business. To that point, he knew little about chickens, except for the fact that they made an excellent dinner. He learned quickly, however, that to call a person a chicken, though perhaps appropriate, is not an act of admiration. For the novice, nothing is more nauseating than a chicken house full of chickens. He decided, nevertheless, to learn about chickens.
