Jesse Tree: Day 25

December 23

Scripture: Matthew 1: 18-25

Reading: Yesterday we talked about Jesus’ mother, Mary. Jesus also had an earthly father named Joseph, who was a carpenter.

God sent an angel to talk to Joseph in a dream. The angel explained that God had chosen Mary, and that Mary’s baby would be very special. When Joseph woke up, he knew that he and Mary were a part of God’s plan. Joseph knew that he would be a good father to Jesus.

Talk About: Name some ways that God speaks to us.

Prayer: God who calls us, help us to hear your voice.
