A Faithful Father
Scripture doesn't tell us a lot about Jesus' earthly father, Jospeh. Yet, we can see from a few short passages that Joseph was a man of great faith! Every time that he received a message from God, Joseph's words and actions proved how much he trusted God. When the angel told him about Mary's pregnancy - Joseph believed. When he was warned to flee from Herod - Jospeh believed. When he was told to return to Israel - Joseph believed. When he was warned about Herod's successor - Jospeh believed. Over and over, we see that Jospeh heard God's words, believed, and obeyed. May we all live by such faith!
