24 When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb. 25 The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau. 26 After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau’s heel; so he was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them. 27 The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was content to stay at home among the tents.
Talking Points: Jacob and Esau were twins: they were born at the same time and had the same mother but God had made each of them very unique, or special. Esau was red and hairy and like to be outside and go hunting. Jacob’s skin was not hairy at all and he enjoyed staying home and doing things like cooking. Even twins that look alike are unique; God made every single person unique with their own personality and gifts.
Questions: Are you unique? What makes you unique? How were Jacob and Esau unique?
