Do We Listen to God’s Will for Us?

In today’s Gospel from Matthew (Mt 1:18-25), we hear of Joseph who seems to be making a rational decision.  And yet, we find out it is not God’s Will.  Joseph is not supposed to divorce Mary who he loves.  Instead, he is to take her and her unborn child Jesus into his home. He learns this in a dream from an Angel.  Joseph acts in faith to do God’s will.  And in the process, fathers the Son of God.  Amazing! We must learn to hear God’s Will for us.  This can come in many forms.  But to hear His Will, we must be able to listen to our hearts and the voice of God.  May we seek to do this during this Blessed Christmas Season.
