I think we all are "jacob" at times in our lives... We all wrestle, we all work for LABAN (who is a sheep shearer) = makes money off the flock, and worships many gods (false beliefs), I call Laban RELIGION --- He tricks you into marrying the one you don't want to marry (LEAH) = THE LAW... which gives birth to TEN SONS (the commandments) -- ALSO Leah, has poor eyesight (understanding)
When you WORK (self efforts) for LABAN (Religion) who marry (Become One) with LEAH (poor understanding and the law)
But isn't it interesting that we ALL have our time with LABAN... and eventually we find our TRUE LOVE RACHEL... You see the LAW is our schoolmaster and it LEADS US TO CHRIST... And when we finally leave LABAN (religion) we bring both our wives (THE LAW AND CHRIST) with us.
Don't know if any of this makes any sense, but it sure was fun to think about. Peace
