Advent Day 10

Joseph and the Angel

Read: Matthew 1:18-21

Special verse: But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “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. – Matthew 1:20

Discuss: Joseph was afraid and confused when Mary told him she was going to have a baby.  He wasn’t sure if he should still marry her.  But when the angel came to him in a dream, he understood who this baby would be; God’s son!  Why do you think God wanted Joseph to be a father to Jesus on Earth?  Who are some men in your life that take care of you or show you love?

Week 2 Craft: See instructions for a cute popsicle stick Nativity ornament here.  If you are swimming in LEGO bricks at your house, challenge your kids to build a LEGO nativity like the one shown here.
