Chronological Reading Plan for April 28, 1 Chron 7-10

Today's readings are 1 Chronicles 7-10. Tomorrow's are Psalms 102-104.

In 1 Chron 6 we see the line of Levi preserved but also the line of Aaron, the High Priest. Aaron's sons perform the sacrifice while the rest of the Levites serve at various functions in the temple. Even through captivity, God has preserved the priesthood.

In 1 Chron 7 the rest of the tribes, except for Dan and Zebulon are listed and tracked.

1 Chron 8 -10 trace Saul's lineage. It is made clear that Saul has lost the kingdom and his life for his "breach of faith". The same reason is given for Judah being taken into captivity by the Babylonians. Judah is redeemed by being delivered from the Babylonians. Saul is redeemed by raising prophets up in his descendants.  A worldly price has been paid but God has been faithful to His promises. 

Through it all, we see that we can depend on God and His promises, even when our situations seem hopeless and despair knocks on our door. The genealogies, paired with the Psalms are our guarantee that God will do what He says He will do.
