IF YOU WERE THIS SUMMER TODAY YOU WOULD PRAY WITH ...
Consider why is it that the Father chose Mary and Joseph to be the parents of Jesus. They were chosen ... specifically chosen. It was Joseph who was chosen to be the model of what it means to be a man, a father. It was Mary who was chosen to model what it means to be a woman, a mother. Jesus had Mary and Joseph as His models. Who are your models? Who has influence in your life? Who are you striving to be like?
