Matthew 1:1-17

Recently I read a story about a final exam in a religion class at a very exclusive boarding school. The first question on the exam was; “Explain the meaning of the Incarnation.” The answer was worth five points. The second and last question was; ‘What is the first name of the woman who cleans this classroom every day?’ This answer was worth ninety-five points. Everyone flunked the test! What good is knowing the meaning of the Incarnation if it does not open us to an awareness of those around us?
