Flight into Egypt


"...an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, "Arise and take the Child and His mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him." And he arose and took the Child and His mother by night, and departed for Egypt; and was there until the death of Herod, that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, "OUT OF EGYPT DID I CALL MY SON."
Matthew 2:13-15

This is just what I've been reading lately. I wanted to focus on the life of Jesus and His ministry for my daily reading.

Pretty pictures that you find, too!

What lovely pictures! We must remember that now is when we must become focus on Jesus' life and His ministry with the culmination of His gift - Dying for our sins.

Thank you dear friend for the gentle reminder.

Blessings,

Can you imagine having to flee with your young family leaving everything behind? What great faith Mary and Joseph had.
