Top Oldest Sibling Quotes

Oldest Sibling Quotes By Timothy Keller

The book of Genesis is a window into what cultures were like before the revelation of the Bible. One thing we see early on is the widespread practice of primogeniture - the eldest son inherited all the wealth, which is how they ensured the family kept its status and place in society. So the second or third son got nothing, or very little. Yet all through the Bible, when God chooses someone to work through, he chooses the younger sibling. He chooses Abel over Cain. He chooses Isaac over Ishmael. He chooses Jacob over Esau. He chooses David over all eleven of his older brothers. Time after time he chooses not the oldest, not the one the world expects and rewards. Never the one from Jerusalem, as it were, but always the one from Nazareth. — Timothy Keller

Oldest Sibling Quotes By Barbara Engler

Birth order is a crucial factor. Whereas oldest children
tend to identify with their parents and authority and to sustain the status quo, younger
children tend to rebel (cf. Averett, Argys, & Rees, 2006). Moreover, the repercussions of
sibling rivalry extend beyond individual development to society as a whole — Barbara Engler
