Fathers and mothers all have certain expectations for our lives and those of our children.
Joseph would have had expectations for Jesus’ life.
In this story, Jesus blows his parents’ expectations out of the water.
Letting go of our children is painful. But the best thing we can do for them is to set them free to fulfil God’s plan in their lives.
Many of us are still trying to prove ourselves to our parents and to earn their acceptance. The good news is there’s no need. Your Father has already accepted you.
