The Christmas Story 11

Matthew 1:25

kept her a virgin until…

Mary and Joseph were in love. Despite the heavenly intervention in their lives they were first lovers. Some have painted a picture of Jesus’ mother as a chaste, untouchable woman. That was far from who she truly was. Yes, she was the mother of the Savior. Yet why would God condemn her to a world of isolation from human intimacy? What better home to raise the Messiah than a home where husband and wife loved each other intimately? What better model can you think of than a man’s undying love for his woman?
