A Good Parent Loves

“A good parent loves all of their children and never thinks of terms such as “more” or “less”. Love is not quantifiable. It rejects comparisons. Jacob is Jacob, heir to the covenant. Esau is Esau, doing what he does, being what he is, enjoying his own heritage and blessing. What a simple truth and how beautifully, subtly, it is conveyed. It is one of the Torah’s most profound messages to humanity – and how deeply (in this age of ‘the clash of civilisations’) the world needs to hear it today.”
