- What attributes did Rebekah have that are good examples for us to follow?
How can I be like Rebekah?
- Rebekah had twin boys named Esau (the older one) and Jacob. In those days, the oldest boy inherited all of the father’s land, money, and even blessings from the Lord. This was called the birthright.
- Why Esau might have been willing to give up his birthright in exchange for a meal?
- How does this story apply to us? Are there things we want now for which we are willing to give up our blessings later?
- Later on, Isaac was very old and went to give the birthright blessings. Rachel helped Jacob trick Isaac into giving him the blessing for the oldest child instead of Esau.

- These blessings will be passed down to us as we are baptized and adopted in Abraham’s family (if we aren’t already born into it).

- How is the Savior like living water?
- Note that the Philistines had “stopped” the wells. Is there anything in your life that is stopping your wells of living water?
