What a woman this Lady Mary! What a wonderful lady, the Bible said. But Mary kept all these things in her and pondered them in her heart.

“You know, really, what Mary could have done? She could have gone on speaking to her ‘I carried the Christ. It’s all about me now.’ But life is not about you. Life is not about me,” the thought I want to leave you today.

“He must increase, I must decrease,” John 3:30. Don’t build yourself up. Mary’s a great example, just a perfect example. She was blessed beyond measure. Of all the women in the world, God chose her to carry the Son of God, birthed by the Holy Spirit of God without sin. Jesus was born of her, and she never meant the sacrilegious. Went to the papers, went to the internet, told how important she was. Instead, she just kept it in her heart and watched the Father in time elevate the Son.

Let’s watch our spirit, our attitude, our pride today. Have a great day.
