Read Luke 1:31-32 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: If you were Mary, how would you have reacted to this news?
Parent Note: No one could have expected this! Hearing that this was God’s plan for her life must have really shocked Mary, but she accepted it with grace. Ask your child if they would be willing to give up their plans for their life if God told them to do something completely different?
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for Your plan for me.
I know that You have done everything in my life with a purpose.
Help me to accept Your will with grace and obedience.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
