“The book of the genealogy of JESUS CHRIST, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham: 2 Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers. 3 Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram. 4 Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon. 5 Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse, 6 and Jesse begot David the king.” Matthew 1:1-5 (NKJV)
Only the SPIRIT of GOD could cause genealogies to come alive because they represent life. Each name represents a baby born and a life lived, blessed be the Name of the LORD.
With all the injustice that surrounds us every day, it is easy to get discouraged, easy to get overwhelmed. I wonder how Leah felt.
She was given in marriage to a man she knew loved another woman – her own younger sister. It was so obvious she was unloved, that GOD HIMSELF made sure it was stated in the Bible in Genesis 29:31. GOD didn’t just mention it; HE comforted her.
“31 When the LORD saw that Leah was unloved, HE opened her womb; but Rachel was barren.” Genesis 29:31 (NKJV)
Leah, the unloved, the uncared for, the unjustly treated, became the mother of Judah. She became mother of an entire tribe. The tribe of Praise. The tribe of Judah. The tribe of JESUS.
Every baby born alive is a life that GOD wants protected. A life that GOD wants fed, educated, loved. When a baby’s mother dies and the baby is abandoned, it is hard to see how that is fair. Due to poverty, the life of an orphan in a developing country is very hard.
Like Leah, the orphan babies are unloved, uncared for and unjustly treated. Many end up in child trafficking rings that sell them into slavery to evil taskmasters, even in 2020.
Nevertheless, GOD knows how to make up for what is broken. HE knows how to un-break the broken and heal the divides. HE alone can turn the unloved into fathers and mothers of tribes.
Thanks to your love gifts, we are able to feed abandoned babies and orphans that the LORD brings our way.
You are the ones JESUS uses to sustain them through the hard times and propel them into their destinies with hope.
