Reading- Matthew 1:18-19
(18) Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. (19) Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
- What does someone who is in " right standing" with God ( a righteous person) look like to you?
- According to Mathew 1:20 ( But while he thought on these things...) Was Joseph hoping for answers in a seemingly desperate time? What is hope to you?
To me, hope is a reminder never to give up but to always keep pressing on because God is still in control.
- Have you ever been misunderstood or really had to stand up & suffer for what you believe as Mary & Joseph did?
