Genesis 28

Jacob's 10% Solution (aka the Tithe)

10 Jacob left Beer-sheba and went toward Haran. 11 He came to a certain place and stayed there for the night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place. 12 And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, the top of it reaching to heaven; and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 And the LORD stood beside him and said, "I am the LORD, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your offspring; 14 and your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you and in your offspring. 15 Know that I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you." 16 Then Jacob woke from his sleep and said, "Surely the LORD is in this place--and I did not know it!" 17 And he was afraid, and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven."

Musings

Well Jacob's ladder gets all the glory, but Jacob's pillow is probably partly responsible for a bad night's sleep. It's a rock! It makes one wonder who was the first person to realize that even a wadded-up robe would be more comfortable. Oh and by-the-way, the covenant is re-stated by God for Jacob showing that God also recognizes that Jacob is the successor to Isaac. Of course, God knew that already, but that's beside the point.
