Have you ever wanted something so much that that you’re willing to overlook important details in order to make it happen? I have. We can’t make a decision from a position of lack or weakness that’s a terrible idea. Once we make the decision to move-in, whether in business or relationships, it’s eye-opening so don’t overlook the details.
Jacob Was Tricked Or Did He Overlook Important Details?
The world’s system is the Laban system. It chews us up and spits us out. The full story of Laban and Jacob is available in Genesis 29:1-30. Laban took advantage of a younger man named Jacob by tricking him into marrying Laban’s older daughter instead of the younger more beautiful one. What’s worse is Jacob worked for Laban for seven years to earn this privilege!
We Need To Keep Our Eyes Open To The Character Of Others
Laban abused Jacob’s integrity, but Jacob overlooked Laban’s faults. Jacob worked seven years for Rachel, was tricked, got Leah and then worked another seven for Rachel. I don’t know about you, but life is too short to keep dealing with someone of Laban’s character. We have ONE life to live here on earth. Enjoy it.
Don’t Ignore The Advice Of Those Who Know You
You see, Jacob KNEW something wasn’t right in his knower, but he WANTED Rachel. We ignore our friends and family, and we won’t ask their opinion when we think they won’t agree with us. We know they will KNOW!
People Have Reasons And Agendas For Coming Into Our Life
Exposure allows us to stop seeing the surface and to see someone’s true self. Know them by their fruits. Fruit doesn’t pop overnight. We get impatient, and we get in a hurry. Don’t rush. If it’s God today, it’s God tomorrow. Whether in business or personal relationships, just remember, if you need someone bad, you might get someone bad. So be sure to make that next important decision from a position of strength.
