20 Dec Matthew 1:20

20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.

This was a scandal. Joseph’s bride-to-be was carrying the Son of God before they were married. Joseph wanted to divorce her quietly and save her the humiliation, but the angel explained what was happening.  Bet that woke Joseph up! More importantly, Joseph did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him. Are you being obedient to God even when you don’t understand?
