Climbing uphill to change the world
Who am I speaking about? Well, the answer is - Mary, Joseph and Jesus. From their rugged journey back to Bethlehem, to the birth of Jesus in a borrowed stable, as well as the fear of angry Herod. Life was getting harder and harder. However, it was through all of these hardships that this little family began to change the world.
"On one evening, Joseph, Mary, and the child Jesus step out the front door of their humble dwelling, face the wind, and somehow know that this was just the beginning. Just the three of tehm. Three who would change the world, but who would have to do it CLIMBING UPHILL." - Scot McKnight
Changing the world is never an easy task, but one has to start with the first step.
Know that whatever uphill task you face today, Jesus understands.
Genesis 35:17 - And as she was having great difficulty in childbirth, the midwife said to her, “Don’t despair, for you have another son.”
