Advent Reflection #6

Joseph is fearful; by the end Joseph is courageous.  He is fearful of derision of his community.  He is fearful of Roman oppression (who wouldn’t be.) He is probably fearful of what it will be like to raise the Messiah.  He does not take them to Egypt from fear, however; he does it from obedience.  Everyday after the angel’s announcement and his dream he must grow in courage, more and more everyday.  He cannot abandon his mission.
