Observation: What was going on in the Bible at this time?
1 Chronicles 1-2 describe the genealogies of the nation of Israel and of God’s work in the world from Adam clear through Zerubbabel. This long genealogy not only lists names, but it also gives us insights into some of the individuals. Follow along in 1 Chronicles 1-2!
Application: How can we apply this to our lives?
Today’s scriptures demonstrate that God is interested not only in nations but also in each individual person. There have been many people who have lived since the beginning and Adam, and God knows and remembers each and every one of them. Each of us are more than just a name or a number to God; He knows and loves us more than we could ever imagine. Be sure to read through the genealogies of Israel covered in these two chapters – pretty amazing.
