The covenant continues: Genesis 27-35
Genesis 30:25-43

Laban remains a cheating and devious man - he does the dirty on Jacob and moves three days away. Jacob is left with Laban's flocks, sans the stock for his pay.

He implememts a plan that looks less sceintific and more superstitious... until you read Genesis 31:4-13a... and all Jacob has done is obey the strange and obscure word of the LORD. ANd, funnily enough, the LORD does as promised in Genesis 28:15!!!

God's word can be a puzzle and sometimes completely counter-intuitive... but it is God's word, and like him, is good and gracious and right. His grace in his word calls forth obedience that trusts... and so we see Jacob invest in what seems a bizarre breeding programme that works!

Now, this is not a prescriptive sum for immediate wealth, but the recipe for living the right life, no matter what. And God remains faithful to his word... What a framework to approach today!
