20th December 2018 Thursday 3rd Week of Advent
Isaiah 7:10-14, Luke 1:26-38
“When God asks...”
“Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.” Mary clearly understood what humility meant. She understood that she is only human, with her own set of limitations and weaknesses. Yet, she also understood very much that she was loved by God and she loved Him in return. This is the basis of her ‘yes’, for her whole life, in good times and bad. Her relationship with her Creator was one built on mutual trust and love!
Today, let us build our relationship with God on the basis of trust and love. Like Mary, we too can say ‘yes’ when God asks.
Question for reflection:
1) How can I strengthen my relationship with God so that I can say my ‘Yes’ to Him today?
