We must decide what is must important.
It is easy to get distracted by temporal things and forget about forever. We can focus on money and reject the Lord.
Money is not bad but we must have God as our Savior and Lord.
The success of a job is great but we must honor the Lord in our jobs.
The sad news is that people will forget about the Lord and have no respect of the things of the Lord.
Esau had no desire for the Lord and he despised the Lord. He didn't follow the Lord.
Most people have the same desire. They will reject the Lord and reject the Lord.
Jacob had a desire for the Lord. He wasn't perfect but God can use a man that desire to follow him.

31 Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.”
