“The children agitated within her.”
~ Genesis 23:17
After decades of infertility, Rebecca conceives twins. In-utero the foetuses were already destined to their respective life-paths, with Esau getting excited whenever Rebecca passed a house of idolatry and Jacob whenever she passed a Torah Academy.
But if their moral fibre was already cemented before birth, where was their freewill?
Their freewill wasn’t expressed in the raw material they were gifted with, but what they built from it.
To reach your potential – don’t order take-away – cook what’s in the fridge.
