Elizabeth was to be doubly blessed with a baby who was male.
Tradition was that the child would be named after his father but both Elizabeth and Zechariah
Break with tradition instead to name the baby John as the angel had instructed Zechariah.
Tradition has its place, but it we let it, it may replace Gods will and purpose for our lives, closing ourselves and others to all that God can do and is revealing to the world.
Which traditions would you be willing to give up to know and follow Gods will a little closer?
