Today's reading: Matthew 2:13-23
After the wise men visit Jesus, God warns Joseph through a dream of Herod's intent to find and kill Jesus. So Joseph, Mary and Jesus head to Egypt where they stay until they receive another divine message instructing them to return to Israel because Herod had died.
This part of the Christmas story beautifully and clearly depicts how God watches over, cares for and protects us.
Thank you God!
Think back over the past several years. Identify at least one situation or scenario where God protected you or your family physically, financially or emotionally. How does remembering God's past protection give you encouragement as you go forward? Tami
