A young girl living an ordinary life chosen to live an extraordinary life.
Who is this girl?
Mary, the mother of Jesus.
I think about Mary a lot, not just during the Christmas season. I often think about her faith, integrity, loyalty and great love for God. There are life lessons in Mary’s life:
Mary demonstrated absolute faith in action through obedience.
Mary loved unconditionally.
Mary’s faith and obedience reminds us how God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
As we think about Mary this Christmas, let’s ask ourselves: “Am I willing to step out of my ordinary for God’s extraordinary?”
“And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.” – Luke 1:38
