One Word: Chosen


Mary said: “My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked with favour on the lowliness of his servant.” Luke 1.46-48
  • Mary was astonished to have been chosen to be the mother of the Messiah. Have you ever been surprised to be chosen for a special role?
  • Have you ever wanted to be chosen, but not been?
  • Have you ever had to do the choosing – making a job appointment, choosing a life partner etc.? How did you make the choice and how did it feel? What were you looking for, and how did you know you’d found it?
  • Mary says that God has “looked with favour on her lowliness”. Are the qualifications we look for always the right ones? Do we overlook people who don’t push themselves forward?
