#adventbookclub – Joseph: part 1

A reflection on Matthew 1.18-24:

What strikes me is Joseph’s willingness to listen to God and obey, his apparently unquestioning readiness to throw in his lot with Mary on the basis of something as tenuous as a dream. He doesn’t ask for confirmation, for another sign. He doesn’t test God. He doesn’t question why or how God wants to use him, unlikely though it seems. He simply trusts, and obeys.
