12 December – The Emperor speaks

Big decisions of powerful people sometimes have consequences they don’t bother to think about for the more ordinary people who get caught up in them. When Caesar ordered a census of his empire, it led Mary and Joseph into a difficult journey, just as Mary’s baby was due to be born.

Joseph and Mary didn’t have much choice but to travel to Bethlehem, but they trusted that God’s plan wouldn’t be knocked off course.

Can you remember a time of being forced to do something you didn’t want to, and finding that God was present with you throughout the experience?
