Chapter-a-Day 1 Chronicles 1

Clues from the past to who I am in the present. Adam, Seth, Enosh.... 1 Chronicles 1:1 (MSG)

Reading through the trunk of our family tree today, I could not help thinking about Father's Day this past week. We are all a product, genetically, of our forefathers. We are all influenced, systemically, by our famillies. For me, a huge part of understanding my own journey has been spent answering the questions:

"Who am I?"
"Who is Jesus?"
"Who am I in Jesus?"

Certainly part of the answers have come from learning about my family. In the past I find clues to who I am in the present. And yet, the future is largely determined by me. I choose the next step I take.

What shall I do today?

Israel's Family Tree: The Trunk

The title struck me today. Nothing gives a family a strong foundation like a strong patriarch. That strength can carry over for generations. It's my job to continue what many male Rooses have started before me.
