Joseph’s choice

Standard

Gospel Mt 1:18-25

“Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man,
yet unwilling to expose her to shame,
decided to divorce her quietly.
Such was his intention when, behold,
the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said……”

Joseph does not say much, though he does weigh his choices. His original decision was to divorce Mary, but then he heard an angel and decided to follow it. Joseph had a choice to either follow his intentions, or Gods. His is an example of the simplicity of letting God into your life.Listening to those angels of God and making the decision to follow through on their word. There was absolutely nothing complicated about it. No debate, no pondering, no jury, no councils, and no laws. It was the decision and conviction of one man to say yes to the message of God (the angel of God), that brought God into his life. Nobody but God gave him that authority, and nobody but God can take it away; though many will try.
