Luke 1:5-25 https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/121922.cfm

Being Faithful in Difficult Times.

As Mary was with a child not of her betrothed Joseph, he could have put her to death according to Jewish law, but he didn’t. Zechariah could have divorced Elizabeth because she was barren, but he didn’t. According to the Law of Moses, both righteous men had reason to abandon their wives for good reasons. I find it amazing how God blessed each commitment these men made to their wives before the Lord!

God honors the love commitments we make with people. Zechariah chose to remain faithful to Elizabeth despite the curse of her barrenness and its shame. It melts God’s heart when we choose to be faithful in difficult times. He delights in us when we accept an impossible challenge, trusting that He will never let us down. Trust opens the gates of heaven’s blessing.

Gospel Challenge
Difficult times with people are the raw material for God to work His miracles of grace. Don’t give up on each other when a relationship seems to be crashing down and ending. God is just beginning and will work with you through your commitment.
Ignite the Fire
