Jacob Have I Loved

Pastor Alfred told a story in church this morning that I thought was profound; I couldn't find the exact story online, but I did find an approximate version of it:
The illustration is given of a lady who went to Charles Spurgeon and said, “Mr. Spurgeon, I don’t understand how a loving God could say in His word that He hated Esau.” Have you ever struggled with that? She struggled with it. Do you know what Spurgeon said? He said, “That has never been my problem. My problem has always been, how could God have loved Jacob!”
