As the writer of the Books of the Chronicles provided the genealogy of Israel, he came upon the tribe of Judah,

(His wife Jehudijah bore Jered the father of Gedor, Heber the father of Sochoh, and Jekuthiel the father of Zanoah.) And these were the sons of Bithiah the daughter of Pharaoh, whom Mered took (1 Chronicles 4.18).

Have you noticed that before? This daughter of one of the Pharaoh’s did what Moses did, turning away from the vanities of the Egyptian Kingdom and joining herself to the people of God!

Questions:

  • What are you willing to give up to be part of God’s people?
