Matthew 2:13-20, Luke 2:1-7

Has parenting posed some challenges you weren’t really ready for?  Try being in this situation:  Joseph, was asleep when he found out in a dream that King Herod sought Jesus’ life.  That had to have given him an adrenaline rush.  He probably had to wake up Mary and their young son, Jesus, before they headed to Egypt that night.  It seems like it would have been unsafe for their little family to travel at night, but since an angel of God gave them a heads up, they most likely felt sleepy but safe.

Mary and Joseph were brave parents.  Kudos to all of the brave parents out there.
