We Can Choose A Better Way
As far as Joseph knows, his new wife has been unfaithful to him and broken their marriage contract. And yet,
instead of punishment, he chooses not to publicly disgrace or humiliate her. This interruption in his life
becomes a holy invitation when the angel comes to him in a dream and says, “Do not be afraid.” When he
awakes, Joseph once again has the courage to choose a better way – to stay with Mary and become an
adoptive parent. When have our ancestors also chosen a better way, and when have they not? How can we,
like Joseph, choose the way that God calls us to?
