Jacob Learns That What Goes Around Comes Around

Jacob Learns That What Goes Around Comes Around. As we will soon discover, this name is a very fitting one for Jacob.Episode #8: Jacob Learns That What Goes Around Comes Around

This week on the History for Christian Teens podcast, your hosts, Crystal and Kevin Niehoff, continue our series featuring historical characters from the Old Testament by exploring the life of Jacob. Jacob’s name means “the grabber” because he grabbed his twin brother Esau’s heel as he was being delivered. As we will soon discover, this name is a very fitting one for Jacob.

We will specifically dive in and examine two major events in Jacob’s life where he discovers that the old saying is true, “What goes around comes around.” Biblically speaking though, these events in our account of Jacob demonstrates the truth of Galatians 6:7, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” As we conclude, we will also touch on the importance of being eternally-minded rather than focusing on the temporal, such as Jacob’s brother, Esau, did.

Next week- Be sure to join us next week when we explore the harrowing story of a man who was sold into slavery by his own brothers but was able to rise above his circumstances and even eventually extend forgiveness to them.
