Isn’t it interesting how God can take a mess and turn it into a message? Take the time to read Matthew 2 about the genealogy of Jesus. It says, “David, who was the father of Solomon, whose mother was Uriah’s wife…” Not David’s wife, not even Bathsheba. “Solomon whose mother was the wife of Uriah.” A thousand years later when they wrote it down, God still did not recognize the validity of that marriage, because of the way it began. Even in spite of that God made something beautiful out of a mess. That’s the business God is in. Look at our lives! God is in the business of taking mistakes and using us for his glory!
