Wednesday, May 17th: 1 Chronicles 1-3, John 5: 25-47 ~ Nathan

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is  1 Chronicles 1-3; John 5:25-47

1 Chronicles 2:3
The sons of Judah: Er, Onan and Shelah. These three were born to him by a Canaanite woman, the daughter of Shua. Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the Lord ’s sight; so the Lord put him to death
1 Chronicles 2:7
The son of Karmi: Achar, who brought trouble on Israel by violating the ban on taking devoted things.

Two verses where we read a quick wrap up a person's life that had lived a sinful life or had made a big mistake. Both instances are reminders, written in the bible, of these peoples sins.

A good reminder to me that I need to ask for forgiveness for my sins, and try not to repeat them. They are then washed away, and I thank God for sending His son to die for my sins, so that I can be forgiven and washed clean.

So true - I wouldn't want my sin to be the mark of my life.

Two interesting things I noticed in the genealogies
- there were two sons named Bethlehem
- David named one of his sons Nathan, which is the same name as the prophet who confronted him about his sin with Bathsheba.
