Pairs (2)

Today we are reading about Elizabeth and Mary. An angel visited Mary and told her that she would have a baby son. Mary was confused, but the angel told Mary not to worry. Mary told the angel (verse 38b), “I am a servant girl of the Lord (God). Let this thing you have said happen to me!”
When the angel left, Mary went to see her cousin, Elizabeth. Elizabeth was pregnant, too. God chose Elizabeth to be the mother of John the Baptizer. Elizabeth knew that Mary’s son would be a special baby. In verse 43, Elizabeth told Mary, “You are the mother of my Lord, and you have come to me! Why has something so good happened to me?”
God gave Elizabeth and Mary special jobs to do. Elizabeth was to be the mother of John. Mary was to be the mother of Jesus. Both Elizabeth and Mary trusted and obeyed God.
God has a special job for you, too. Maybe He wants you to be a missionary or a Sunday School teacher or a Christian parent. Trust God and follow where He leads you.
