He Accepted Jesus as His Son
The real purpose of Christmas is not simply to accept gifts, but rather to accept the things in life that are truly difficult to accept such as forgiveness, fears, failures and frustrations. When the information that ushered transformation to mankind got to Joseph, he was not as completely willing as Mary. Having nothing to do with it, he was deeply bothered by the pregnancy of Mary. But after hearing from the Angel, he obeyed God over his human nature. He received peace of mind from the message that fulfilled the promise of God. He eventually accepted Jesus to be his son.
"Christmas is not just about willingness, it's also about acceptance..."
