Key Points:

  • Isaac had twin boys named Jacob and Esau. Genesis 25:25-26
  • Esau was the older twin so he was supposed to be the lucky one.
  • Jacob tricked Esau and stole his birthright. Genesis 25:33
  • It’s foolish to give up something big for something small.

Memory Verse:

Proverbs 25:28 A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls.
