Kitchen Table Devotions

Christmas 2022

Day 3

And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned  to send her away secretly. 20 But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.                  Matthew 1:19-20

It’s a beautiful thing how one choice leads to the next choice when our hearts are right.  We walk with God from one choice to the next.  We call them steps, but our steps follow our choices.  Joseph considered his next steps.  His choice wasn’t just for him but for Mary.  The righteous heart considers everyone involved, including what God wanted.  Those who want God, weigh their choices.  This isn’t about feelings, even though you know feelings were there, this is about values.  Those who weigh their choices use the weights of their values to do so.  And those who value God are those who get a visit from God.  Those who share God’s values will see life with God’s vision.  It’s a beautiful thing.
