Grace in a shabby world.
Jacob is no better than anyone really. He’s just betrayed God as surely as Peter did. But he is chosen. Though him will come blessing.
He is given a vision of god’s perspective. Heaven and earth linked and his angels passing between the two.
Genesis has these exultant moments of grace amongst all the petty nasty banality. God intervenes.
He’s intervened in my life too. Back to work, long hours chained to an irrelevant place so I can fund the rest of my family. But I gave been chosen, blessed.
Give me wisdom lord.
