The gospel of Matthew opens with a family tree account of Jesus’ relatives. Just like many of our family trees the history is messy. Yet, in the midst of it, we see God’s hand of providence in it all. We also experience the call of Jesus and are encouraged to believe that God’s destiny and purpose for our lives transcends any natural circumstances that we might think can hold us back.
