“Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.” – Luke 1:30 – NKJ

Have you ever just pondered on Mary? Have you ever wondered what kind of girl she must have been to be chosen the one to be the earthly mother of God Himself? What was it about her that caused God to smile upon her in such a way? Out of all the girls in Israel, why was she the one who would mother the King?

The answer is quite simple. I believe Mary was chosen because of her humble spirit and because of her simple faith in God. When the angel told her what would transpire, she didn’t argue or tell him all the reasons why she should not be the one. She received his word and “believed”. She responded by saying, “Let it be to me according to your word.” (Luke 1:38)

Faith and humility are two attributes every believer must possess. Without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6) and God resists the proud (James 4:6).
