Read Luke 1:26-56 together as a family.
In today’s Bible story, Gabriel visited Mary with a huge announcement. God was about to rescue the world through Jesus, and she had an important role to play. Mary was overwhelmed by God’s love for the world and the part she got to play by fulfilling God’s plan to send a Savior.
God can use anyone to meet others’ needs. Even if you don’t feel like you have what it takes, God can use you to show compassion and meet the needs of the people around you.
Discuss the following questions with your child:
- God chose Mary to bring Jesus into the world so Jesus could save us. Why might people have been surprised that God chose Mary?
- What was Jesus willing to do to meet our need?
- When was the last time you helped meet someone else’s need? What did you do to help them?
- What is the greatest need at your school? What could you do to help meet that need?
