Read: Luke 1:26-38

Think: God had a special job for someone. God was looking for an earthly home for baby Jesus. Jesus was going to need a mother who loved and trusted God. He would need a mother who was smart and strong and loving. God chose Mary to be Jesus’ mother.

God sent an angel to talk to Mary. Mary wasn’t sure that she could be a good mother to Jesus, but the angel reminded Mary that God would be with her. Mary knew that being a mother would be a difficult and important job, but she knew that God would guide her. She also knew that she loved God and wanted to do whatever she could to serve him. Mary said yes with a joyful heart.

Discuss: Talk about a time when you had to trust God or someone else.

Pray: Thank you, God, that nothing is impossible with you. Amen

Do: Download and cut out the symbol of the white Lily and hang it on the Jesse Tree.
