Esau said, “I have plenty, my brother; let what you have remain yours” (Genesis 33:9).
The world of Genesis is a world of lack and insufficiency, there is not enough for everyone. Only one child is chosen to get their parents blessing, only one child gets the parent’s love, only one child can continue the legacy of their parents. And the chosen child is always at the expense of the other child (children). Such a harsh and difficult message about our world.
Esau is the only one who sends a different message: “I have plenty, I do not want to take what is yours, there is enough for us all. We do not need to take what is not ours.”
