I’m always amazed at the flexibility of Olympic gymnasts. I’m also thankful at how flexible young children are. One time I accidentally shut a car door on my child’s arm. It was bad but he just had a bad bruise and some pain - no broken bone. The pediatrician said that even the bones of children can be flexible.
I figure it’s a good thing that Mary the mother of Jesus was young. Talk about the need to be flexible. Read about her in Luke 1:26 - 38. Her plans were changed drastically, with no notice, and no body else initially informed. She had to be flexible in order to follow God’s plans and she was.
A question for the second week of Advent - how flexible, malleable, teachable, open are you to the plans of God in your life? Are you willing like Mary to be God’s servant on such short notice?
