The Perfect Gift

God was never in search of perfect people to fill the Messianic line. Abraham conspired with his wife Sarah to lie, out of fear for his life. Abraham's son Isaac conspired with his wife Rebekah to lie, out of fear for his life. Abraham's Grandson Jacob cheated his brother Esau out of his birth right. Abraham's daughter-in-law Rebekah, taught her son Jacob how to cheat. Rebekah's brother Laben, deceived Jacob concerning the marriage of his daughter, Rachel. Abaham's Great Grandson Judah, impregnated his daughter-in-law Tamar. Abraham's decendant Salmon, six generations later, married a prostitute. Abraham's decendant David, ten generations later, committed adultery and murder. Abraham's decendant Solomon, eleven generations later, had seven hundred wives. Abraham's decendant Jesus Christ, in the 42nd generation, was born good and perfect. God is presently in search of people who will accept the perfect gift of His son Jesus Christ. May we, through our love, share with others this greatest of all gifts. Merry Christmas. 12012017 PS
