Did you know that when Joseph first found out that Mary was pregnant, he almost didn’t marry her? That’s what the Bible tells us in Matthew 1:18-25. An angel told Joseph to accept both Mary and baby Jesus as a part of his family, and Joseph listened and obeyed.
Listening to and obeying both God and your family is important, and it’s something we all need to practice. Today, ask a family member for advice on a difficult task. Whether it’s how to clean your room or the best way to wrap a Christmas present, try asking for advice–and then obey what they tell you to do.
Take some time to listen to God too: we’re sure He has great things to tell you! We’d love to hear how YOU listened and obeyed today, so feel free to tell us (if you want)!
