Though she was afraid and a little doubtful at first, Mary quickly embraced her role in what we now call the Christmas story. Once it was all explained, her simple reply was, “I am the Lord’s servant. May it be to me as you have said.” (Luke 1:38)
The author of Luke goes on to tell us that Mary sang praises to God, recognizing that He blesses those who are humble, those who have little, and those who serve Him. Perhaps this example is just one more gift delivered to us through Mary.
Generations have called her blessed, and in turn, we have been blessed for generations. Glory!
