Excerpt from my book
A Word from the Word, A Daily Commentary on the Gospel of Matthew
Where have you come from? What is your families’ history? How far can you go back in your families’ genealogy? You are not alone; you’re carrying a long line of influences with you as you walk around. You are more like your family and relatives than you might want to admit. How did they survive? How did they work things out? How can you model your life after their successes? God has put a lot of work into making you who you are. You are a mixture of genes, histories, and circumstances that make you the unique you. God is the great chemist who mixed all those things together to make you happen. Embrace that uniqueness; look at your families past to see your future. God has worked out great things for you.
