25 Questions for Mary

One of the most fascinating people in the Christmas story in scripture is Mary, the mother of Jesus. Her willingness to be used by God and her attitude she kept as she journeyed into the unknown was truly remarkable.  I encourage you this Christmas season to dig into the scriptures and see what you can learn from Mary.

Max Lucado did a piece on some questions people would have loved to ask Mary, as she had the supernatural privilege of being so close to Jesus…
