The Best Pillow for a Hard Head
And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. ~Genesis 28:11
A good pillow is essential if you want to sleep well. I have a difficult time sleeping on an unfamiliar pillow, or if it is too fluffy or too hard. A bad pillow will give you a headache, stiff neck, and shoulder problems. Jacob was away from home. On that first night, he was in the middle of the desert. He “took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows.” I have often thought that he must have had a hard head to be able to sleep on stones. I mean, he knew that stones do not provide proper neck support, and that they are very hard for the typical head. Jacob was a “hard head.” He was a “hard head” physically and spiritually. The description of a hard head is that of someone who is extremely stubborn.
There is the reason for a hard head.
