I've never thought much of the Bible references that a genealogical listings. They don't really connect to be in anyway and your family doesn't necessarily define you. But today I wondered if someone may have a sole purpose in their life to nurture someone else into existence.
All the most influential people on the history of humanity had parents and grandparents who undoubtedly nurtured and fostered the person they became. Would the world be a better place without MLK? Mother Theresa? Mandela or Gandhi?
What if their parents unintentionally were the lynch pin in these world changers becoming, well, world changers? What if these people's sole purpose in life was the creation of a certain soul at a specific time?
