‘Labanity’ is an act of deceiving someone who doesn’t take time to double check the terms and conditions before agreeing to them.

Jacob agreed to serve Laban for 7 years in order to marry Rachel.Little did he know that Rachel wouldn’t be given out in marriage before her elder sister.

After Jacob toiled for seven years,Laban had this to say:

Laban answered, “It is not the custom in this place to give the younger daughter in marriage before the firstborn.Complete this week of wedding celebration, and we will also give you this younger one in return for working yet another seven years for me.”

Laban! Laban!! Laban!!! Didn’t you know about this custom thing when you brain washed Jacob into this agreement?

Let’s see how Jacob even entered the mess:

“Jacob loved Rachel, so he answered Laban, “I’ll work for you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel.”

Laban replied, “Better that I give her to you than to some other man. Stay with me.” So Jacob worked seven years for Rachel, and they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her.”

Hmmmmmmm…I can’t really blame Laban.Love must have blinded Jacob’s eyes such that he couldn’t see the brewing trouble ahead.

Check every term and condition of any contract and look for vague clauses that can affect you negatively later.

Don’t be Labanised!
