FOOTBALL HISTORY 1 VS. FAMILY HISTORY 0

FOOTBALL HISTORY 1 VS. FAMILY HISTORY 0

The beginning of this month has been a culmination of the Super bowl and Black history month. For the past several years it has been brought to my observation that many Black Americans can recollect the facts on their favorite teams but cannot tell their own children one thing about their own family history. Isn't this the staple for Black families not going anywhere because they don't know where they have been. Jesus even had to be told his family's history to know he is God otherwise he would have had to settle with knowing his stepfather was a carpenter. The man who cannot pass on family history to his offspring but can pass on the history of Jesus has failed his family. Knowing someone great and being great is not conducive to greatness. Your immediate family history is 250 years old and that sports teams history changes by the year but your family history before your grandparents has become a part of the annals of your Black History. Wear your family's pride and know their struggles and pass it down. Paying triple figures for a pro sports team ticket only last a couple of hours but an ancestral test for a similar cost can last a life time.
