  3. READ the stories of Jacob and Esau from Genesis 25 & 27. ASK: why do you think Jacob lied? Say: Sometimes Bible stories are a little strange and show real people doing things that people do. Sadly, like lying. Jacob lied to get ahead, but Jacob had blessed him. And that blessing was God’s blessing, and even though Jacob had been sneaky, God’s blessing was still going to be true because God keeps his promises. Tough one!
