Imagine you’re Mary, on the road to Bethlehem. What would you say to God?
- What will people think?
- What’s in it for me?
- Your will be done.
Nazareth to Bethlehem. 90 miles. Not a pleasant trip for a very pregnant woman, on foot or by donkey. Me? I’d whine, “this is NOT what I signed up for.”
God doesn’t promise that your road to Bethlehem will be an easy trip.
