We all say that we want freedom of choice. We like options. None of us like to feel inhibited or forced into our choices. We also often have difficulty making choices. How do we know we’ve made the right choice?
We can be overwhelmed by the choices we face. We worry about the implications of our choices. We wonder what the future holds for us and how our choices will impact us over time.
Joseph and Mary had many choices to make as new parents. Today’s passage teaches us that God speaks into the details of our lives and guides us through the challenging choices we face.
