Read: Luke 1:26-34

In life, who often gets the rewards?  The fastest win the race.  The smartest ace the test.  The most beautiful win the pageant.  This is the way the world works.  It is not, however, how God works.  God chose Mary to be the mother of Jesus not because she was the fastest, the smartest, or the most beautiful.  He chose her because He wanted to bless her (Luke 1:30).  God makes His choices on the basis of His grace, not our goodness.

Question of the day:  What are some things that God has blessed you with from His grace (things you did not earn but He gave to you anyway)?

NOTE:  Each day between now and Christmas, I will be posting these devotional thoughts concerning Advent to this blog.  The artwork for each day is a product of children from Wildwood Community Church‘s Children’s ministry.  You can also access these posts via the “wildwoodchildren” Instagram feed or Wildwood Community Church’s Facebook page.
