“Jacob had hoodwinked Laban the Aramean by not telling him of his intended flight.” —Genesis 31:20
After twenty years of being ripped off by Laban and yet somehow always coming out on top, Jacob decided to go home. After much controversy, Jacob and Laban parted in peace.
Prayer: “May the Lord keep watch between you and me when we are out of each other’s sight” (31:49).
