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?
