And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. ~ Luke 1:30-31
One of the best Christmas questions for any man of faith comes from my friend Robert Noland. He asks this about Joseph in the Nativity story...
"Can you imagine being chosen to raise God’s only Son?"
Think about that today. What if God chose you, a regular dude, to raise the savior of the world? While Mary struggled to wrap her mind around the news from the angel, Joseph's head must have been spinning!
Like Joseph...no matter your place in this world, if you have Christ in your heart - you are truly raising the next generation to know Christ.
What can you do to share Christ's teaching and good news?
