The scripture for today, March 29, is Luke 3:29 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

“…the son of Joshua, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi….”

Who in the world were these five men: Joshua, Eliezer, Jorim, Matthat and Levi? Some were named after famous Jews, but no one in this list was famous himself. In fact, nothing else is said in the Bible about any of these men. They’re just a single name in a single but long list.

Who were they that they earned even one brief mention in the Bible?

They were ancestors of Joseph, the human “father” of Jesus. What else? They were born and survived long enough to have sons. Not important at the time? No, but eventually it was.

We read obituaries and sometimes wonder about our own. Our whole life reduced to born, married, had a job, had children, died. That’s it. Nothing out of the ordinary. Just another one of billions in the world having come and gone.

Hold on! Maybe not!

Maybe your life, as ordinary as it seems now, will some day serve a greater purpose through a descendant or someone you become friends with. In a later generation ~ maybe ten or twenty generations from now ~ someone may do something extremely important for souls of the world. And it was made possible because of your “unordinary life” way back in the early 21st century when you survived one day at a time.

So, keep on keeping on!

  1. STRAIGHT TO THE TOP! – Graham, Texas – When I was 19 and my wife was 16 we started our own construction company. We had no money and no jobs but I promised to pay the owner of a hard ware store $3 a weeks for an electric saw. The company grew into a large industrial/commercial business building schools, clinics, churches, manu-facturing plants, setting heavy machinery and we actual built a zoo with no fences, and a little bit of railroad. Also restored an 1867 calvary fort complete with hand whittled wooden pegs. After 28 years I burned out working 16 to 18 hours a day. My wife owned a furniture store and I became an employee. Went back to school and earned my CHC which enabled me to study for my Interior Design degree and registration. Practiced that for 28 years. Said I would never retire, but my wife closed the store! Past Lay Preacher in Methodist Church. Currently non-denominational. Have taught in Assembly of God, non-denominational charisamatic and Methodist. Teach Bible Studies, Christian Values and Christian Living. Artist, Interior designer, writer, Favorite hobby is reading, or is that sandpapering? We just sold our two story Victorian home with 17 rooms, 4 full baths, 2 half baths. Built in 1900 and 1901. Since it is all wood, keeping it in repair was a full time job. Currently living in the 'burbs', If there is such a thing in TEXAS! Can now mow the yard in only one and one half hours. Whooopieee!

    I don’t know if you are getting my comments, or not. I keep posting and they are ‘IN MODERATION’ After a bit (hour or two) I come back and they are nowhere to be found?—-So just remember, I didn’t say anything BAD about you!
    Love every word you write, always to the point instead of a lot of so-called Christian things on WordPress.
