Being Careful

Throughout the history of God's people there are a number of very close calls--situations in which events take just a slight turn and that turn reveals how close the events came to having an outcome other than the one they had. Scripture reveals that we can get very close to being in God's kingdom and yet still miss it. None of this contradicts God's sovereignty. It reveals how very careful we ought to be with our lives. Esau’s conversation with his father Isaac helps us see that we need to be careful about our purposes and plans, careful to look at ourselves, and careful about our Lord’s purpose and plans.
