(27) “A FEW DAYS” CAN EASILY BECOME DECADES.
27. “A FEW DAYS” CAN EASILY BECOME DECADES.
Genesis 27:44 – “And stay with him a few days, until your brother’s fury turns away.”
Jacob was instructed to leave for “a few days” but it turned into twenty years! I wonder how many people dabble in sin and tell themselves: “I’ll just do this one time.” And they end up enslaved to it! Jacob didn’t intend to be away from home that long, but that’s the way things worked out. The wise should take heed.
