I like being able to see scripture stories and the people in them in a different light. There is no doubt Mary, wife of Joseph, was a good person. She is a person to emulate. But to have the extra insight helps to recognize her special talents.
Obedience is key in this life. The trouble with me is I tend to talk myself out of doing certain things because I’m unsure of the source. If I would just follow through on good things I’d be pretty safe. There is no need for extra chatter in my head to talk me out of a good deed but it occurs.
Obedience tends to require movement and action. Unless the action is to be still. I hope to be a doer of the word!
