While reading the genealogy of Jesus in Matthew chapter 1 recently, I found an interesting person mentioned in verse 5. It says, “And Salmon begat Booz [Boaz] of Rachab [Rahab]; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;”
Rahab, Boaz, Ruth, and Jesse are all names with which I’m familiar, but never before had I noticed Salmon. The more I considered this man, the more I realized what an interesting person he must have been.
I thank God for the reminder that Salmon is to me – that we need not be well-known or full of talent to fulfill our place in God’s plan. We just need to be surrendered to His will, trusting that He knows how to work in our lives what is best for His kingdom.
