Day 1: Genesis1-2; Matthew 1

We usually read quickly through the genealogies, and I committed today to slow down and really take in Matthew 1. This time, I started to recognize names… names of kings that I usually struggle with as I read through the books of Kings and Chronicles. But today I was reminded that Jesus not only comes from solid roots (yes, I took license with the pic for the blog post), but he also serves as a King, Lord, and Savior to all of those kings who came before him. He truly is King of kings and Lord of lords.
