And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS. (KJV)
Mary couldn’t name the baby she had Jesus because she didn’t fully understand His destiny.. God named Jesus.. Don’t allow people who don’t understand your destiny to name you.. People also probably whispered that Jesus was the illegitimate child of Joseph.. Rumors smear the reputation and defame many innocent people.. However, none lived with any better moral character than Jesus—and they still assaulted His reputation.. Just be sure the rumors are false or in the past and keep on living..
You can’t help where you’ve been, but you can help where you’re going..
