As I mentioned, I love reading the scriptures leading up to Christmas. Some of the most amazing scriptures relate to Mary and her faith.
What would our reaction be if an angel of the Lord spoke to us about what was about to happen and what was expected of us?
Shock? Wonder? Fear? Amazement? Confusion?
Imagine Mary’s age when this conversation took place and how she responded:
“I am the Lord’s servant, Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said. Then the angel left her.”
– Luke 1: 38
