The Living Nativity

Read This:¬†”Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

"But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, 'Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.' " (Matthew 1:19-21)

Think: Joseph isn't the most interesting of that little group huddled around the baby in nativity scenes, living or otherwise, on display around the world every Christmas season. His wasn't the miracle pregnancy or the close encounter with the whole host of heavenly angels. (He slept through his own angel visit.) We're even more curious about the animals in the barn with the baby than we are about Joseph.
