Commentary: The books of Chronicles are extremely similar to the books of Samuel and of Kings.  They cover the same events, however, the way they cover the information is different.  Samuel and Kings inclusive historical records, while Chronicles records the history that is deemed important by the Lord.  Today’s reading consists of genealogy.

Focus Verses: There are no specific verses for consideration today.  Instead, consider why genealogy is deemed important.  What is its purpose?  Where else is genealogy recorded in the Bible?  Why?
