Much of following Jesus is asking, “What is the next right move?” Every day we are faced with decisions. Some are mundane and seemingly ordinary and others are difficult that can change the course of our lives and those around us like Joseph’s. The problem for many of us is not that we don’t know what to do or what God is calling us to do, but an unwillingness to step into that place, into that unknown because of what it will cost us. In Joseph, we see someone who risked his reputation, standing in the community and financial stability to marry Mary and be a father to Jesus because God told him to. What if this Christmas, as we looked towards 2020, what if we stopped asking God to show us a sign and did what we know he has called us to?
