I find it significant that God placed the young Jesus in a family. Did you allow anger and bitterness to poison your relationship with your parents – even over things that happened many years ago? Don’t let your parents’ failures – real or imagined – hold you in their grip any longer. Instead, ask God to help you forgive the past – and then ask Christ to change you into the person He wants you to be. And if you are a parent, ask God to help you be a loving and wise guide for your children, and to build your family on Christ and His will.
So [Joseph] got up, took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel…and he went and lived in town called Nazareth.
