Esau “despised” a massive future blessing to satisfy a present transitory craving. Where do you see this happening in our world today? Where have you seen this happen in your own life? What is going on in our thinking that causes us to forfeit something that will be extremely valuable in the future for a short-lived pleasure in the present?
What can we do at those times when our flesh is screaming for immediate satisfaction pushing thoughts of the consequences of our actions from our minds? What spiritual practices have helped you at these times? Do you have brothers and sisters in Christ that can encourage you when you don’t feel like doing the right thing? If not, pray for them and start seeking them out.
