Imagine if God asked you to obey Him in one area of your life, and when you did, people accused you of sin, and called you a liar. In all probability, you would wrestle with ridicule, and perhaps shame, but you would do your best to follow God regardless. Young Mary must have felt absurd telling her fiancé that she was pregnant, yet that she was entirely faithful. Who could have blamed Joseph for walking away? Mary did not choose the path, yet she accepted it, regardless of what others thought. How do we trust God, when doing so may make us look foolish?
