I love how ABBA's Word encourages us. How at times we have to read "the rest of the story", to see how Majestic He is. To see how at all times, He is in control and uses all things for His Glory.
The focus in the accounts of Jacob's sons is mainly on Joseph. When we read of the great things God used Joseph to do, who represented Christ in being used to save the Israelites linage, it would be him whom we think would be one of "the ones" in the lineage of our Savior.
"So Judah stepped in and told his daughter-in-law Tamar, "Live as a widow at home with your father until my son Shelah grows up." (38:11)
"Judah saw her and assumed she was a prostitute since she had veiled her face. He left the road and went over to her. He said, "Let me sleep with you." He had no idea that she was his daughter-in-law." (38:15-16)
And yet it is Judah whom God used.
"Perez" - which means "breakout".
Perez was "one of the ones".
Throughout the lineage of our Savior are ones who messed things up.
The one who is our hope.
