Marriage in the margins

Greetings to those in our river city,

I hope to regularly share a brief “Word for Today” on this blog as I read The NKJV Daily Bible.  Feel feel to comment, insert questions, or chime in with praise.  May you enjoy God’s Word with me.

Now Sheshan had no sons, only daughters, and Sheshan had an Egyptian servant whose name was Jarha.  Sheshan gave his daughter to Jarha his servant as wife, and she bore him Attai” (I Chronicles 2:34-35).

Two things to note:

  1. Sheshan let one of his daughters marry an Egyptian.  He looked beyond skin color.  His family welcomed every race.
  2. Sheshan let his daughter marry a servant.  Love transcends social-economic status.

This is characteristic of the family of God.

roots by the river,
