Joseph of Nazareth

Read: Matthew 1:18-25

Think: Yesterday we talked about Jesus’ mother, Mary. Jesus also had an earthly father named Joseph, who was a carpenter.

God sent an angel to talk to Joseph in a dream. The angel explained that God had chosen Mary, and that Mary’s baby would be very special. When Joseph woke up, he knew that he and Mary were a part of God’s plan. Joseph knew that he would be a good father to Jesus.

Discuss: God used an angel to speak to Joseph. How might God speak to us?

Pray: God, help us to hear your voice. Amen

Do: Download and cut out the symbol of the Carpenter’s Tools and hang it on the Jesse Tree.
