Salmon was the father of Boaz (whose mother was Rahab). (Matthew 1:5, NLT)
By all accounts, Rahab should have died when Jericho fell. Plus she was a prostitute.
But, she didn’t take a fatalistic attitude to coming disaster.
And from her lineage, the Savior was born.
My past doesn’t define me. The way I used to live doesn’t have to determine my future or the future of my children.
Father, thank you for your grace that allows me to take a different path forward. Give me courage to walk in your grace and on your path.
