There is a beautiful story of courage mixed within the story of Jesus’ birth. We have all heard it, but we seldom focus on it. Joseph heard first hand that his fiancé was pregnant, and it was not his child. Yet he stood by his new family. He provided protection for the mother and child during the early years of the child’s life. It is a wonderful story of courage from an ordinary man. We too are ordinary and have been called to faithfully do the right thing, and we are called to live courageously. Let’s consider an area of our lives, where we as ordinary people, can show extraordinary courage.
