Bible Mothers (4)

mother of Jesus, is probably the best-known mother in the Bible. Our Bible Reading today tells us about the time when the angel, Gabriel, visited Mary.
Gabriel told Mary some exciting news. “Don’t be afraid, Mary, because God is very pleased with you. Listen! You will become pregnant, and have a baby boy. You will name him Jesus” (verses 30b-31).
I think that Mary was surprised, confused and also happy. She probably had many questions in her mind. But she didn’t argue with Gabriel. Instead, Mary said, “I am the servant of the Lord God. Let this thing you have said happen to me!” (verse 38a).
Sometimes God gives me a job to do. But instead of being like Mary, I complain and ask God, “Why do I have to do this?” I need to learn to be humble like Mary. Also I need to trust God to help me do what He wants me to do.
Be like Mary today. Don’t ask questions — just do what God says!
