Max Jukes, an atheist, lived a godless life. He married an ungodly girl, and from their union there were 310 who died as paupers, 150 criminals, 7 murderers, 100 drunkards, and more than half of the women were prostitutes! His 567 descendants cost the state one and a quarter million dollars (please keep in mind that this was a LOT of money in the 1700’s).
But, praise God, it works both ways! There was also a great American man of God named Jonathan Edwards. He lived at the same times as Max Jukes, but he married a godly girl. An investigation was made of 1,394 known descendants of Jonathan Edwards of which 13 became college presidents, 65 college professors, 3 United States senators, 30 judges, 100 lawyers, 60 physicians, 75 army and navy officers, 100 preachers and missionaries, 60 authors of prominence, one vice president of the United States, 80 became public officials in various capacities, and 295 college graduates, among whom were governors of states and ministers to foreign countries. Jonathan Edwards’ descendants did not cost the state a single penny.
“The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot” (Proverbs 10:7).
