Today we continue the chronological view of the Gospel of Christ in Matthew 1. What struck me was the perfect genealogical balance from Abraham to David to exile in Babylon to Jesus, which is laid out in Matthew 1:17, Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, Fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ. It is often difficult to see God’s plan when we are in the middle of the journey, but when we look back, we are able to see more clearly the orchestration of God’s plan. We must trust God as He leads us through this life and know we are part of His perfect plan.
