Today’s reading was about Joseph, Guardian of Jesus (Matthew 1:18-25). The Bible reading came from Matthew, which was a nice change, since our last several readings have been from Luke. It’s interesting to compare the different perspectives of the writers. We spent some time talking about the fact that even though Joseph wasn’t Jesus’s biological father, his lineage could still be traced back to King David. We also talked about his visit from the angel, and how he decided not to divorce Mary, even though he could have, because of what the angel said to him.
We’re nearing the end of our daily readings…there are just enough left for each child to hang one more ornament on the tree!
