I Think Some Integrity Is In Order Here

In case you ever wondered, Puffs tissue is softer on tender noses. Still coughing and sniffling. 

Goodness gracious, there sure is a lot of deceiving going on in these chapters here! Genesis 29-31

Jacob wanted to marry Rachel and worked 7 years for her, but got tricked by her dad into marrying Leah. Then he works another 7 years to marry Rachel. I’ve always thought this was raw deal until just now when I realized that this was the same guy who dressed up like his brother in order to trick his dad into giving him the blessing of the first born. I don’t know, maybe he kind of had this coming. I sure wish I had access to the rest of the story. 

“So Laban brought together all the people of the place and gave a feast. But when evening came, he took his daughter Leah and brought her to Jacob, and Jacob made love to her. And Laban gave his servant Zilpah to his daughter as her attendant.  When morning came, there was Leah! So Jacob said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? I served you for Rachel, didn’t I? Why have you deceived me?”  Laban replied, “It is not our custom here to give the younger daughter in marriage before the older one. Finish this daughter’s bridal week; then we will give you the younger one also, in return for another seven years of work.”
