DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 20:1-21:18; Lamentations 1:1-22; 1 Timothy 4:1-16

And he (Esau) sold his birthright unto Jacob. Genesis 25:33

On the day Esau sold his birthright he allowed his desire for a bowl of pottage to alter the rest of his life. We shake our heads and say “What a fool.” But many of us make equally foolish trades. What desire have you possibly let bring failure into your life? Repent, and let God give you a new start today. —Ken Gross
If I gained the world, but lost the Saviour,
Were my life worth living for a day?
Could my yearning heart find rest and comfort,
In the things that soon must pass away? — Anna Olander
