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."
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.
