“Esau ran to meet Jacob and embraced him; he threw his arms around his neck and kissed him. And they wept.”
(Genesis 33:4 NIV)

Whenever there is more then one person in the same place there exists the potential for interpersonal conflict which will require reconciliation. The Bible tells a touching story of successful reconciliation between two brothers Jacob and Esau. After years of being separated after an inheritance dispute they would meet each other once again. Successful reconciliation involves giving. Jacob was willing to let go of the past and gave free gifts to his brother. (Gen 33:10) In return Esau gave him his love. Our sins have offended God causing eternal separation for the wages of sin is death but God in reconciliation gives us the free gift of eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom 6:23) In return we give God our whole love.
