馬太福音 1:24 約瑟醒來，就遵照主的使者的吩咐把妻子娶過來； 25 但是沒有和她同房，直到她生了兒子，就給他起名叫耶穌。
Matthew 1:24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
沒有約瑟的犧牲服從，我們就不會有聖誕節。 當我們慶祝耶穌的誕生時，讓我們也讚揚通常“被遺忘的父親”約瑟。 特別是在這時代，我們越來越需要像約瑟這樣的父親。 父親可以被”遺忘”，但卻不可或缺！
Without Joseph’s sacrificial obedience we wouldn’t have Christmas. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, let us also give credit to Joseph, “the forgotten father”. Especially in these times, we are more and more in need of fathers like Joseph. Father can be forgotten but can not be done away with!
