God with us

Matthew 1:18-25

Joseph’s plan was to start a family with Mary and build his own personal empire. But God had different plans and Joseph was faced with a choice. Three elements in Joseph’s life about following God were the fear of changing his plans and what other people would think, trust and resolve in trusting God’s plan over his own and staying in a relationship with Mary, and self-denial in waiting to have a physical relationship with Mary. Joseph’s life tells us that following God is worth it.
