My Sister and Sister-in-law, whom I love dearly seem to never have time to spend with me in cyberspace because they are so busy searching for their family genealogy projects. The other night we went to visit and I got stuck viewing old family pictures of her dead relatives that she has collected on her computer. In 1 Timothy 1:4 we see - nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith. and in Titus 3:9 we hear " But avoid foolish controversies, genealogy, dessensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.

Listening to my Sister and Sister-in-law go on and on about their discoveries , the skelitans in their family closet can be ever so boaring for me at times.It's one of those little sacrifices we make sometimes for those we love. Genealogy is a big deal for lots of folks these days. One of my Sisters favorite thing to do is call me from Texas to tell me when she has discovered a new little conection with one of our dead ansestors, most of whom there is no information that would lead us to believe they were pagan or Christians.
The other day ( just for fun ) I sent them a copy of the Genealogy of Jesus Christ Matthew 1:1-17, something of interest to me now that I'm older and can appreciate our Fathers family tree of life.

Thank you for this Link . I've never heard of Rev.Jakob Aall Ottesen before, but its good to know he's on our Family Tree and that he's one of the saints who have come before us, a brother-in- Christ.Remembering 1 John 4:20-
If anyone says " I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen can not love God whom he has not seen.
