Shortsightedness

Genesis 29:25-26

In the morning Ya’akov saw that he was with Le’ah, and he said to Lavan, “What kind of thing is this that you’ve done to me? Didn’t I work for you for Rachel? Why have you deceived me?” Lavan answered, “In our place that isn’t how it’s done, to give the younger daughter before the firstborn.

Sometimes the reward from Adonai is not what I expect it to be. In Ya’akov case Leah was mother to six of his sons, half of the tribes of Israel. Like Ya’akov also I don’t see the worth of that reward until much later because I am so focused on something else. God forgive me when I get wrapped around the axel about things. Thank You for all the blessings You have given me. Amen.
