Shortly after the birth of Esau and Jacob in Genesis 25, you find that the family of Isaac and Rebekah became incredibly dysfunctional. Each parent had a favorite child. Jacob swindled his brother out of his birthright. Isaac tried to pass his wife off as his sister. Then Isaac decided to secretly bless his older son. In order to thwart Isaac’s deception, Rebekah hatched up an even more devious scheme. The result was that the whole family was in shambles as Esau vowed to kill his brother Jacob. Despite their obvious flaws, Rebekah did something right. She sent her son away to find a wife rather than allow him to marry one of the heinous Canaanites. Jason Locke describes the possibilities of parenting even when you as a parent may be far from perfect.
