Nimrod

Have you ever wondered where the word "nimrod" came from? I had only heard it used to describe someone who was an idiot. Well the other day I was reading 1 Chronicles and I came acrosse this: "Nimrod, who grew to be a mighty warrior on earth." 1 Chronicles 1:10

Do you ever wonder if God had things like that in books like Chronicles to get you through them? I struggle so much when reading lineage or laws to hurry through them. I was trying to be intentional to read slow and hear the names, etc. So it was fun to catch this.

Also, isn't it funny that the first Nimrod was a mighty warrior but today if you are a nimrod you are an idiot. Strange how things change. :)
