I Am a History Buff

This last week in my study I read the account of the Hebrew named Issac and the blessing of his sons Jacob and Esau as well as the blessing of Jacob's sons Ephraim and Manasseh. If you are not familiar with Jewish history I think you'll find hte story of these people pretty fasinating, if you know any Jewish people today you'll see where they get many of their traditions.

When my small group meets tonight we will be discussing the similarities between the two events, as well as approach this question: Have we had pain in not receiving a blessing we thought we were due or desperatly wanted. We'll also touch on why this blessing was so important to us and then finish by writing down someone in our life who we can bless this week.

Who can you bless this week?
