DCL 4.1 Instruction | Biblical Case Study | Esau

Video Presentation: Todd Mullins, Lead Pastor and Shaun Blakeney, Student Ministry Pastor, Christ Fellowship, Florida

Esau is a powerful picture of a leader without vision. Abraham’s grandson, Esau, loved the great outdoors. He was so engaged with the present, depending solely on his own strength and resources, he completely failed to see the future.

Some observations about Esau and his nearsightedness:

1.  He lived for the moment.

2.  He gave up the ultimate in order to gain the immediate.

3.  He was easily deceived.

4.  Self-gratification controlled him.

 

DISCUSSION

  • What are other reasons that Esau could not see the big picture?
