Jesus was homeless

Today, I will touch on the problem of homelessness. The first person that comes to my mind is Jesus. He said in Matthew 8:20, “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.” How could it have been that Jesus himself was homeless? First of all, family law was similar to ours so I think that when Joseph, Jesus’ step-father died, most if not all of the family property went to Jesus’ half brothers and sisters just as it happened in my husband’s family. None of Jesus’ half brothers believed in him, so it is safe to assume that there was animosity and division within Jesus’ family.
Jesus did not have an earthly father to protect him, just as my husband did not have an earthly father because his father was with another woman. My husband’s father sent a telegram four days after his birth to say, “I am fine…I love the two of you.” He never mentioned when he might come so see his firstborn son or his wife. How many men abandon their firstborn sons and daughters for another woman? Far too many, I am afraid. Can you imagine how my husband’s mother must have felt to deliver a man’s child knowing that he had no desire to be a father to that child? Jesus said in Matthew 18:6, (Luke 17:2, Mark 9:42) “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe, unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!”
