Jacob fled his Uncle Laban and while fleeing, he hears that his brother Esau is on the way. Jacob does what he does best and sends his servants out ahead of him bearing gifts to his brother. Before he actually meets up with his brother, Jacob wrestles with a man all night long. When the man asks Jacob to let him go, Jacob says not until you bless me.
Jacob does not the blessing immediately, but he does have his name changed to Israel. Fascinating lessons when you confront your problems head on.
