A real blessing

As a 75-year-old recently new-born Christian, I have so much to learn. “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” Dr. Reed Lessing’s December article on Matthew’s genealogy was a real blessing. It reminded me yet again of the depths beyond depth in God’s Word. Though I can never fathom them all, the story of those five women teaches me that I can rejoice in having a Gospel that has so many blessings for me.

I read the Witness from cover to cover every month. Thank you.

Great story, I remember being a shepherd in someone’s bathrobe! However, I think Dr Lessing was referring to crepe paper not crate paper.
