Mary and Joseph are chosen to be Jesus’ parents. Did your parents help you shine your light? Why or why not? Have you committed yourself to helping this next generation shine the light of Jesus in the world?

WEDNESDAY: Matthew 1:18-19
Joseph was surprised to hear about Mary’s pregnancy. How did Joseph respond? How do you respond when you are surprised by God?

God saves through a child. In what ways has God saved you? What hope do you have for God saving the world?
