This week's episode features Dr. Joel Snider and focuses on Genesis 25:29-34.

Angela Duckworth’s work on delayed gratification resulted in her book, Grit.  I’d encourage all parents to read it, whether your child is 3 or 30.  Find her website here.

For additional thoughts on the long view of life, here is a link to an article I wrote a few years back.  Locusts and cicadas come in a variety of long-cycle lives, ranging from 14-17 years.  I’ve learned “17-year locusts” is used generically of them all.  They are in the news again in 2021.

Living with faith in the eternal God requires more than just a long-view.  “Eternal eyes” see things differently than our culture of immediate gratification.
