Matthew 1:18–24

The story of Jesus’ birth tells us about Joseph’s bravery in accepting Mary’s pregnancy, even when society frowned upon it. This shows us the courage that comes with having faith in Christ. The tale highlights how vital it is to let Christ lead us and obey His instructions. It ends by showing that real bravery means admitting we’re sinful, can’t save ourselves, and need God’s help. Joseph did this by choosing to stand by Mary, even when people thought badly of her.
