Mary’s Thoughts

God’s angel told Mary that she would give birth to God’s Son. This happened before Mary and Joseph were married. Then they traveled to Bethlehem where Jesus was born. Those nine months of Mary’s pregnancy must have been filled with excitement and many questions.
But it seems that Mary never doubted God. She always praised and thanked Him. Mary must have wondered about her miraculous pregnancy and the birth of Jesus. Verse 19 of our Bible Reading says, “Mary continued to think about these things, trying to understand them.”
Sometimes we see that God has done something special in our lives. Or we may realize that God has answered our prayers. Or we might read some Bible verses that give us help and encouragement. We should be like Mary. We should continue to think about these things so we can grow spiritually.
Take some time today to think about the many ways God has blessed you.
