Rebekah’s Favoritism
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

Isaac loved Esau because he had a taste for wild game, but Rebekah loved Jacob. - Genesis 25:28 HCSB Like many marriages, Rebekah and Isaac’s started out idyllically[1] but soon degenerated into a mutually apathetic relationship.

I am a Debtor (Romans 1.14-15; encore)
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

  A debtor, very simply put, is someone who owes a debt, or is bound by some obligation to another.

Daily Wisdom
Proverbs 18:19 - A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city, And contentions are like the bars of a citadel.
Words to Ponder
Too many missionary appeals are based upon this fancied frustration of Almighty God. An effective speaker can easily excite pity in his hearers, not only for the heathen but for the God who has tried so hard and so long to save them and has failed for want of support. I fear that thousands of younger persons enter Christian service from no higher motive than to help deliver God from the embarrassing situation His love has gotten Him into and His limited abilities seem unable to get Him out of. - A.W. Tozer (20th century)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — October 2

. . . Everybody knows just what will happen, and this has become our deadliest enemy. We blame the devil, the "last days" and anything else we can think of, but the greatest enemy is not outside of us. It is within--it is an attitude of accepting things as they are. We believe that what was must always determine what will be, and as a result… … — (click here to read more)
