And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife, 25 but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus. Matthew 1:24-25
This statement “but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son” tells you something about Joseph and something about living for God. It’s in living for Him that we find the life He has living for us. It’s when we make this life about ourselves that we lose sight of the life He has for us. Joseph not only received Mary as his wife, but he also reverenced her in his life as a gift from God. What would happen in our relationships if we began to reverence each one as a gift from God, for God? When we make this life about ourselves, our lives become small but when we make living about Him, life explodes with wonder and wonderful. See the gifts of God sacred and they will always have meaning, keep the gifts of God sacred and they will always have the muscle to accomplish the marvelous.
