Genesis 25: 27-24

  1. Esau wanted.
  2. Esau wanted now.
  3. Esau re-cast his ‘want’ as a life-threatening ‘need.’
  4. Driven by want … justified by inflated need … Esau re-set his values.
  5. Esau was victimized.
  6. Esau forfeited his place of honor, blessing and influence …

                   by not properly valuing it.

  1. We want.
  2. We want now.
  3. We re-cast our ‘wants’ as life-threatening ‘needs.’
  4. Driven by want … justified by inflated need … we may re-set our values.
  5. We become ripe to be victimized.
  6. We forfeit our place of honor, blessing and influence …

                   by not properly valuing it.

Matthew 13:44-46
