Following on from last week, Brian finished telling us about Jacob who made the wrong choice to try and fool Isaac. In doing so, he made his brother, Esau very angry! 


He ran away to go and live with his uncle. During his journey he stopped to sleep and dreamed about God. God was telling him that he was going to be with him and that he was safe. 


Jacob realised that this was God's way of telling him that he had a second chance and that he should go back home. When we woke up, he arranged the rocks he had been sleeping on and named the place 'Bethel' which means 'God's place'.


We learned that although Jacob had done wrong (like many of us may do from time to time) God still loved him (and therefore God will still love us).
