The book of Luke tells us that Mary traveled to Bethlehem with Joseph even though she was very near delivering her first born child. Joseph probably took his betrothed with him to protect her from unkind treatment by those who did not understand what was truly going on. Mary was most likely the subject of much gossip in Nazareth and Joseph was not going to allow her to be put to shame. We can all learn something from this part of their journey. It is not wise to gossip or ridicule someone when we have not walked in their shoes. We make assumptions based on incorrect information and we miss blessings because we don't take time to understand. Today many in this world miss the blessing of eternal life because they have not taken the time to understand what God has done for them through His son, Jesus Christ. Is there room in your heart for a Savior? Have a blessed day.
