basinDay 4, Week 1:  Service (Basin)

Today’s scripture passage:

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered.  “May it be to me as you have said.”  Then the angel left her.  Luke 1:38 NIV

One biblical example of a servant is Jesus’ mother Mary. When the angel Gabriel visited her and announced she would be the mother of the Savior, she did not protest.  She asked how it could happen, but did not ask any other questions.  She likely sensed how her acceptance would change the entire course of her life, but she agreed to the plan.  She simply said, “I am the Lord’s servant.”

Today’s reflection:  

How is Mary’s example good for you to follow?
