By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff. Hebrews 11.21.

God in His word makes a remark here concerning Jacob’s staff. Throughout his life—whether it was leaving home or returning home or going to Egypt—Jacob never left his staff behind. This indicates that he spent his entire life as a pilgrim. God was therefore pleased with him.

Hereafter, we too are to live a pilgrim’s life, no longer returning to dwell in the world. Do you have a staff in your hand? Which is your expectation—to remain in Egypt or to pass through the wilderness to reach the Promised Land of Canaan? The world in which you live should be but a pathway for you; and when you die it provides for you only a tomb. Apart from these two things—a pathway and a tomb—you have no other relationship with the world.
