In Matthew chapter 1 – The genealogy of Jesus, through Joseph, has grace written all over it – for in it we find the names of 3 women (Tamar, Bathsheba and Mary), who by justice’s standards should have been discarded. Yet, God chose to show them grace. In chapter 2, the Magi chose to fear God rather than men in not telling Herod the location of Jesus. Lord, thank you for your grace in my life. May Your grace empower me to fear you rather than men.
