Ponder this with me – Birthright?

Esau despised his birthright.

Here's the passage:

Jacob said, "Sell me your birthright now." Esau said, "I am about to die; of what use is a birthright to me?" Jacob said, "Swear to me now." So he swore to him and sold his birthright to Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew, and he ate and drank and rose and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright. - Genesis 25:31-34 ESV

What is our birthright as born again children of the kingdom? What would it look like to despise it?

How does our heart swap expedient relief of natural needs for the eternal reward assigned to us at our second birth?

Ponder that and let's talk about it.

I'd love to hear your thoughts,

Ben
