As humans, we don't always think straight when we're experiencing human things such as hunger. The rise of the word, "hangry" in recently years has illustrated this phenomenon, that you are just not you, when you're hungry. In Genesis 25, we see an example of a rash decision made in the midst of great physical trial. Esau, sells his brother Jacob his birthright. During the patriarchal period, the birthright brought both physical and spiritual opportunities and responsibilities, and in that moment - Esau 'despised' it. He didn't value it for what it was truly worth. He was more concerned with the physical things of this life, which felt more pressing at that time than his inheritance. We have been provided an incredible opportunity by God, to be children in His Kingdom. That is our birthright, that is our blessing. Do we value it more than the physical things of this life? Or do we allow those things to become our priorities, and in our focus on them--potentially lose out on the things which we've been offered by Almighty God?
