By Don Ruhl

God chose a family to bless the world, and from them we get the Scriptures, and all the good things the Scriptures bring to us,

These were the sons of Israel: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Dan, Joseph, Benjamin, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher (1 Chronicles 2.1–2). 

He did not use them because of their righteousness, for they, like the rest of humanity, often fell into transgression, but He made a promise to Israel, like the promise to Abraham, that in him, God would bless every family of the Earth. God kept His word, and now we have the forgiveness of our sins through the son of Israel, the son of Judah, Jesus of Nazareth.

Questions:

  • How have other people blessed you?
  • How have you blessed others?
