Today’s message provides us with an intriguing story featuring the protagonist and the antagonist. We were introduced to the two main characters Laban and Jacob, in last weeks message. Today, we move to Genesis 31 and discover that the opportunity for devastation has accelerated to an alarming and elevated place. Jacob the protagonist and Laban the antagonist have reached the boiling point. Both of them are absolutely convinced that a great injustice has been done against them by the other. Laban is the pursuer and Jacob is the pursued. Had it not been for two “But God” moments in this narrative, blood would have been spilled on the hillside of Gilead and a family destroyed forever.
