Gospel Matthew 1:1-17
"Roll of the genealogy"
The sum of generations From Abraham to Jesus are fourteen from Abraham to David; fourteen from David to the Babylonian deportation; and fourteen from the Babylonian deportation to Christ.
Do we know the history of our family or where our ancestors came from? Some of us may not know the history of our ancestors but what's important is that we know that we are from God.
We should not forget our history because we can learn from their experience. In a similar way, reading the Bible helps us understand more our origin and how we can improve ourselves more.
Lord thank you for your everlasting love. Amen.
