Mt 1:18-25 "When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him"
What a beautiful example of docility to the Holy Spirit. Docility: a willingness to be guided, and to respond quickly and obediently; the desire to seek and conform oneself to the will of God at all times.
" For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God." Rom 8:14
St. Joseph clearly knew God and recognized His voice. "since he was a righteous man"
St. Joseph had a dream. Unlike Mary, who was visited by an angel, St. Joseph had a dream.
Yet, "When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him."
Can we say the same? Do we respond quickly? Have we studied our faith(a righteous man)? Do we recognize the voice of God? It's not too late.
As we enter this last week of Advent, let us PREPARE, REPENT, REJOICE and cultivate DOCILITY to the will of God.
