Lectionary Thoughts: Genesis 38

Having begun the story of Joseph, the Holy Spirit turns us abruptly back to what really matters: The line of "the seed" that would eventually produce Messiah, the Savior of the world. I often feel like taking a shower after reading about the gross sins of Er, Onan, Tamar and Judah. But ultimately I am reminded to delight in the knowledge that Jesus came to, through and for a race of fallen sinners. Hallelujah, what a Savior!
