Issac (son of Abraham) has two sons who are twins-Esau, the older, and Jacob. Esau is Abraham's favorite while Jacob is his mother's favorite. When it is time to give his final blessing to his heir, the blessing does not go to the older.
We all desire the approval of our father (or father-figure) when we don't get that approval things can spiral out of control. However, when we realize that no matter what we do, no matter how badly we screw up, there is ONE FATHER who (while not always approving) always blesses us.
Give a listen.
