I was reading in Matthew this morning and reminded of how boss Joseph is. I mean, think about hearing these words and the ensuing follow-through:
“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. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
Matthew 1:20-22, 24-25
It’s so simple and yet so much. I would have been like “my girl’s sleeping around on me and blaming it on a spirit! Bye, crazy lady.” Instead Joseph is like “cool, I won’t even sleep with her until after The Kid is born.”
Like I said…boss.
