Sister Maxine's sister was one of the birthday celebrands and when they were talking, she noted that on her birthday -- 3/16 -- she always remembers the inspiring verse from the Gospel of Saint John 3:16 ... So we wondered, what scripture verse correlates to our birthdays?
Today’s Scripture reading is one of my favorites. It is 17 glorious verses naming the ancestors of Jesus. The fun starts with Abraham and Sarah and goes through Judah and Tamar, Ruth and Boaz, Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, up to and including Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. “Of her,” writes Matthew, “was born Jesus who is called the Christ.” (Matthew 1:1-17)
