In Matthew, we learn about the genealogy of Jesus. Matthew wrote this genealogy very intentionally. He included people from all walks of life, all backgrounds, and all nations. He wanted people to see that God uses all types of people – he paints an inclusive picture. Jesus included the rejects and outsiders into his family.
Everyone comes with their own experiences and struggles. Sometimes our experiences make us feel like we are on the outside, like we are all alone. But in Jesus you are accepted. You belong to God.
