Obed was the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of David.
thank you lord that you bring us to this earth not without a family. thank you that we are never alone to battle life, thank you that you are always with us no matter how great our natural families may look or how challenging and tough our circumstances may be when it comes to relationships. you are a family and you so generously took us in and made us yours when we followed you. david had a father, all of us do, and this is even more reason why there is nothing impossible when we move according to your plans because you are the one who holds everything and that is simply your nature - nothing is impossible! thank you lord for being our father, our generous, good, loving father.
