JOSEPH THE STEP-FATHER OF GOD

We don't know much about Joseph - the father of Jesus.

He was a tradesman, working with his hands.

But it is interesting to read the Christmas story through the eyes of this man.

3 LESSONS TO LEARN FROM THIS MAN

  1. Grace
  2. Wisdom
  3. Love

1. Matthew 1:18-19 Joseph's first reaction is grace. He would divorce Mary quietly.

He showed mercy even though the situation doesn't warrant it.

Matthew 1:20

2. We also see wisdom. not worldly wisdom - he knew when to stop and listen.

3. Love. John 8:41

Jesus was attacked about his heredity. Joseph knew that people would talk about Mary. But he loved her anyway and went through the plan of God with her

LOVE IS: TO TAKE SOMEONE'S CHECKERED STORY AS YOUR OWN

LOVE IS: TO WAIT, RESTRAIN AND HOLD BACK

LOVE IS: TO PUT YOURSELF SECOND FOR THE LONG HAUL

WHAT JOSEPH DID WAS AMAZING. BUT WHAT JESUS OFFERS IS UNBELIEVABLY BETTER
