I used to think being like Mary, the mother of Jesus, was unattainable. After all, God picked her to be the mother of the Messiah. What kind of godliness would it take to be qualified for such a role? I didn’t think I would ever attain that level of goodness.
But “perfect” isn’t what God was looking for. In Mary, He found willingness. She said yes to God and His plan.
Yes to being so young and becoming a parent to the Son of God in human form.
Yes to risking Joseph’s reaction to the news.
