Jeremiah 23:5-8; Psalm 72; Matthew 1:18-24

Honourable Joseph

Joseph was a man of faith and prepared to take Mary as his wife even though this was going against Jewish religious convention. He did the right thing even though it may have brought him ridicule and shame. Doing or speaking up about what is right is not always easy, and sometimes we have to take the criticism that comes from this. More often than not, to be a committed Christian in today’s world means to swim against the current. This honourable man Joseph was prepared to do this.
