To: Hebrews 11:6

What would today’s world look like if Jacob had not stolen Esau’s blessing? Resentment over which of them received the blessing would have arisen in Jacob instead of Esau and the Jews would still be kicking Arab butt. So the answer is not much different than it looks today.

I also enjoy contemplating those sorts of "what ifs." But I try to stay alert to God's hand in steering events, as here where he revealed to Rebekah while the boys were still in her womb that the elder would serve the younger.
