10 Days of Nativity: Day 2

Day 2: Mary's Song

Today Mary really gets her introduction. Oh how I love Mary's song, you can learn so much about her faith in these verses. You can learn so much about God too. I wish I had music to go with the song and we'd all be singing today, too!

Introduce: (No New Character, Focus on Mary)

Scripture: Luke 1:45-55
45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be[a] a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”

Mary's Song of Praise: The Magnificat

46 And Mary said,
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
47     and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
    For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
    and holy is his name.
50 And his mercy is for those who fear him
    from generation to generation.
51 He has shown strength with his arm;
    he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
52 he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
    and exalted those of humble estate;
53 he has filled the hungry with good things,
    and the rich he has sent away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
    in remembrance of his mercy,
55 as he spoke to our fathers,
    to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”
Questions You May Ask Your Kiddos:

 Who is singing the song in today's verse? Who is Mary singing about? What are things you can learn about God because of what Mary sings?

Now I know some kiddos are young like Lincoln and he's not exactly answering any questions. But for the older kids, sometimes you'd be surprised by how much they can learn and understand if we take the time to ask questions and really listen to their answers!
