afterward, Esau found no place of repentance

Genesis 27


And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, [even] me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.
We are tempted to think, that as the computer science pioneer Grace Hopper said, It's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to get permission. The story of Esau clearly demonstrates that is not the case. If we want to be living happy and satisfied lives, then we need to realize that when we are tempted to sin, it will end up being so much easier for us in the long run if we make the right decision in the first place. It would be much more difficult (if not impossible) to try to fix the situation afterward.
