Destiny is shaped in moments of decision. Shortly before their wedding, a young betrothed lady becomes pregnant. Her fiancée was not the father. To marry her will leave lingering questions about trust and the child’s paternity. What if he wants her but not the pregnancy? To not marry her could bring society’s shame, rejection, and possible execution for adultery. Were her life to be spared, she’d have to raise the child alone without financial support. What was their decision? She kept the pregnancy. He courageously married her. After delivery, he adopted the child “and called His name Jesus” (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 2:1-21). The rest is history. Life poses many challenges and dilemmas. Choose rightly today; the world’s destiny may hang on your decision.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
