He was justified by law to dismiss Mary but he knew there was a deeper concern, and that concern was not what he wanted nor what his family wanted, but what God wanted of him. “And so by the grace of that Spirit in a dream, that Spirit spoke to him in his heart, in his conscience …and when he woke up, he knew the correct thing to do.”
