Monday, December 14 — Psalm 143:1–6
Micah 3:8–5:15; Revelation 12:18–13:10
Mortals look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.” Luke 1:30
God, you see through the artifice of our attempts to impress the world. As we contemplate Mary, mother of Jesus, we realize that you honor those whose hearts are filled with humble faith and perfect obedience. May we strive for hearts like that. Amen.
