Would You Have Chosen Mary?

Matthew 1:18-25 — Joseph was engaged to Mary and we can imagine the expectations he had for their life together. Then he discovered she was pregnant. Can you imagine how he must’ve felt? Can you imagine the disappointment and the hurt? 

Joseph naturally thought that Mary had been unfaithful and he intended to break off the engagement, but before he did, he received a message from the Lord. He believed that message and went ahead with his marriage to Mary and she gave birth to our Saviour, Jesus.

What would you have done if you were in Joseph’s shoes?
