Thankfulness (3)

Our Bible verses today are Mary’s praises after she learned that she would be the mother of God’s Son. We do not know if she spoke these words or sang them to God, but they are an important example for us.
God chose Mary to be the mother of His Son. And He chose many other people through the years to do His work. In 1 Thessalonians 1:4b Paul told the Christians in Thessalonica, “God loves you. And we know that he has chosen you to be his people.”
God has chosen us to be His children, and He has given us the important job of telling other people about Jesus. When I think about that, I want to join Mary in saying, “Yes, the Powerful One has done great things for me. His name is very holy” (verse 49).
You can praise God today by being thankful that He forgives your sins and wants you to live with Him forever.
