Sunday Thoughts

During those days Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth.  (Luke1:40)

One of the many aspects that make this beautiful is what comes before it.  Mary is just found out that she is pregnant with the Messiah.  She has the looming problem of what her finance Joseph is going to think, plus she is expecting a baby!  But she immediately heads out to help someone who needs her instead of dwelling on her own troubles.  It's a moving example of charity and trust in God.

Maybe I should try to see who else needs help rather than focusing on myself during my own times of tumult.
