Right, so I'm doing a *slow* read through the Bible. And when I say slow, I mean, a chapter a day. I'm still in Genesis. And this is on purpose. I've read the Bible several times, and the last time, I set myself a schedule, and read it in a couple months. But this time I just wanted to start the day with a chapter and that be it.
I'm certain I'm not the first person to notice this, but God really seems to like the younger siblings.
I guess there could be myriad reasons for this theme in the Bible, such as societally (earthly) the oldest son inherits everything, and God blesses the younger because His rewards are not of this life, but the next...
But of course my brain goes to weird places:
Humanity is preferred to the angels - angels were created first (first born sons), but humanity was the one 'created in God's Image'. We got free will and the ability to (basically) spit in our Father's face and then repent later on. It's unclear whether or not angels get this.
Hm. Yes, this is sort of random.
