Epistles to the Cyberchurch - Su Min

To: en & more
From: Su Min
Subject: Twins


We read today Genesis 25:19-34. As I read of these twins, I think of the twins I know and other sibling pairs, and I see how the word of God depicts the rift of sibling rivalry if we are not careful to maintain a correct relationship with God!

Young and beautiful Rebekah from Padam Aram is called a "Aramean". Young and beautiful Rebekah remains barren for 20 years, and in response to answered prayers is doubly blessed with twins.

The last clause in God's promise in vs 23 is something very characteristic of the paradigm shift and paradox that God wants us to understand. "The older will serve the younger".

Paradox - seemingly self contradictory (OED).. many choice examples...

Let us pray

Love dad
