" This time I will Praise the Lord, so she named him Judah"- Gen.29:35
In our reading passage for today 2 things jumped out for me.
First, 2 chronicles 11:5 tells us that Solomon's son, Rehoboam built defense cities in Judah.
Their is safety and defense in praise, and it is the best thing to build a defense in. Psalms tells us that God inhabits the praise of his people ( Ps. 22:3)
Second, one of the defense cities is Bethlehem. Bethlehem? A defense city, Who woulda thought, but then how fitting for God to make an appearance, in a defense built in praise. I thought it was cool.
