Joseph was Obedient

Joseph was a man of great compassion.  When Mary told him of her pregnancy, he could have had her stoned to death.  Instead, he chose the compassionate route. Instead of disgracing her publically, he decided to divorce her quietly.

Who can argue with Joseph?  The woman to whom he was betrothed tells him she is expecting a child and this outrageous story of how it happened!  Out of what we can assume is care for Mary, as well as self-preservation, he decides to release her from their marriage contract.

Then Joseph has a powerful dream with a message from an angel, confirming Mary’s story.  In spite of his plan, Joseph changes course and is obedient to God.  He takes Mary as his wife as the angel commands.

Is God asking you to move in a different direction from your carefully made plans? What will you do?

Prayerfully yours,

Sherri
