A Serious Book
1 Chronicles 4:5-5:17
1 Chronicles is hecka boring. Duh. It's just lists and lists of genealogies and bland history...it's not my favorite read. (The only reason I like it is because it's easy to guiltlessly skim!)
But the Chronicles books are important because they are part of the proof that the Bible is a serious book. It's not just a bunch of stories and poetry. It's also history and documentation and black and white. It's all of those things at the same time, but it is the stuff like Chronicles that is most blatantly stating facts.
It's this stuff that communicates to certain minds and hearts. While I know I am not like this, certain people need the stuff in Chronicles to get it. That's what speaks to them.
And so I am happy to read it because even though it doesn't speak much to me, I may meet someone one day that needs it and I will know where to point them.
