Why do you think that God chose an insignificant couple, such as Mary and Joseph, to be Christ’s earthly parents?
In approaching this special time of the year, I pondered on why God chose Mary and Joseph to be Christ’s parents. He could have chosen anyone but decided upon an insignificant young woman and carpenter. There must have been many other descendants of David with greater influence than Joseph, and surely God would still have been humbling Himself in becoming flesh. In fact it could be argued that someone with significance and power serving others would have had an even greater impact on the people of the time.
So why do you think that God chose an insignificant couple, such as Mary and Joseph, to be His earthly parents?
