A joyful journey: Advent day by day

Friday: "Family connections"

(Reference: Genesis 49:2, 8-10; Matthew 1:1-17)

We can imagine how pleased Jesus would have been to hear a recitation of the 42 generations connecting him with Abraham and David. But he would have been saddened by how few of his great-grandmothers were mentioned by name.

Strengthen your own family bonds by putting together a family tree with your children, giving special appreciation to all the mothers and grandmothers who gave birth to the next generation.
