December 19

Matthew 1:18-25

God’s Change of Plans

Think about it:Joseph did not understand what was going on.  An angel had appeared to Mary saying that she would be the mother of Jesus, but Joseph had not been there.  So he decided it would be best for him not to go through with the marriage.

It must have been hard for him to change his plans.  But it seemed like the best thing to do.  Then an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream, telling him not to be afraid to take Mary as his wife.  So Joseph changed his plans again and made a home with Mary for the Savior of the World.

Change is hard for us, just as it was for Joseph.  But when love, love for God and love for each other, is the most important thing, we can change gracefully.  No doubt the coming days will have their share of changing plans. We can look at them as opportunities to show our love for one another and the Lord.
