This is our last narrative passage of the reading plan, and we see the faithfulness of Mary and Joseph really coming through. It really seems that all through Mary and Josephs journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem to Jerusalem then back to Nazareth, there were people waiting for the Messiah and recognised Him whenever then came across Jesus.
This is quite special, and it makes me think of all the people God has put in my life to guide me and help me on my journey, and I am very thankful for that. In England, I have met up with a few of these people and it have been uplifting to hear that they have been praying for me the whole time I have been in Sweden.
Take some time to thank for first for the people in your life who have given you good guidance, and then for the people who pray for you, even the ones you don’t know pray for you, because there are probably more than you realise.
