Thoughts lead to attitudes and attitudes lead to behavior and repeated behavior over time becomes expressive of one’s character. When Joseph, husband of Mary, found out Mary was with child, he could have condemned her while thinking of himself as “righteous” for doing so. Instead, he chose to believe in God’s plan and chose to extend grace, mercy, and love to both Mary and Jesus regardless of the impact on his life. We are faced with choices every day that tell others and God what sort of character we really have. Do we take the sinful easy path or do we stand firm in our faith and commitment to be on mission with Christ?
