[If you have a printed Bible available, I recommend you read the passages directly from it. It’s a great way to teach our children to treasure it.]
“Then the angel told her: ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Now listen: You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David… ‘I am the Lord’s servant,’ said Mary. ‘May it be done to me according to your word.’ Then the angel left her.”
Heavenly Father, help me be like Mary and submit to your will. In Jesus’ name, amen.
