Jacob did not want any hand outs from Laban, but deserved anything that Laban wanted to give him. It was Gods favor over Jacob's life that cause Laban to prosper anyway. Jacob recognized all that, but still did not want Laban to feel like he gave him anything for free. I can understand him not wanting Laban to think that he made him rich. Jacob wanted God to get all the glory. He knew that if God could do this thing no matter how big or small, that it could never be disputed, who made him to prosper. That is the color of humilty speckled, spotted, and brown. God I want you to do it! I can hear Jacob saying, "God I'm standing on faith and I need you to make the impossible possible." Sometimes we want to provide for our families so desperately that we compromise our standards. Jacob demonstrated in this story, how humilty and faith in Gods ability can give you the victory in any situation. You may not always know the outcome, but you know that with God, you will come out of it victoriously.
