Jesus looks like you and me but he is God’s precious child. Joseph, the shepherds, and the wise men realized they too were God’s precious children. I hope as you gaze on the manger scene you will also realize, “I am God’s precious child.” [AUDIO]
Not every person is called to marriage, but every person is called to family, because God is ultimately the Father and Mother of each one of us. While God is the source of our life, He wants each one of us to have a human father and a human mother, just as God wanted His own Son Jesus to have a human father (Joseph) and a human mother (Mary). It is important for husband and wife to remain united because, when they are strongly united, they make a good shelter for their children.
