There is something interesting about the women/mothers mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus Christ. Tamar disguised as a prostitute to have sex with her father-in-law, Rahab was a prostitute, Ruth was a Moabite (a descendant of an incestuous relationship between Lot and his older daughter), Uriah’s wife (nameless in the genealogy, her husband was killed because David impregnated her), and Mary the mother of Jesus was a virgin with no reputation in her society. Wow! God’s ways are not our ways. God saw it fit to inspire Matthew to highlight their names. Their stories were rewritten. This is love, grace and mercy at work. Regardless of our past/history and obscurity, God specializes in making all things work together for the good of those who love Him, those who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
