As Bishop Alexander expounds on the life of Jacob, he explains that to get to your next sometimes you must go back to places and people you left behind. The return allows you to confront your pride and face your fears. God causes us to go back to receive redemption from our actions and relieve us of burdens he doesn’t want us to carry into our future. Our mistakes never stop God’s promises.
