Amelia Rose Earhart, a TV traffic and weather reporter, assumed that her love of flying could be traced to her namesake, the famous pilot that she thought was a distant relative. The current Earhart planned a flight around the world that would complete the journey begun by the original Amelia Earhart.
After having some research done, Amelia was shocked to learn that she was not related to the earlier Earhart after all. Nonetheless, she continues with the plans for her flight around the world.
A lot of people may be shocked to discover that they are not actually related to God. It is a common misconception—even among many Christians—that all people are children of God. In fact, the Bible says that we can only be considered children of God when we accept Jesus as our Savior.
“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”—John 1:12.
