BUT... as he considered these things (Matt 1:8-21)
Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly.
as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus,
for He will save his people from their sins.”
Too often we don't stop to think about how Joseph felt during Christmas. His wife was pregnant and not by him! Hello that is crazy. BUT we do know he was a Godly man and he listened to what the Lord told him. He became Jesus' step father. I will forever be grateful for my "stepfather", if in the past you have felt like less of a child because you have a step father just remember Jesus had one and if it's good enough for Jesus it's great for me!
