Mary was just a teenager and newly pregnant, yet she went to visit her elderly cousin Elizabeth. She listened to the words of the angel and did not hesitate. This was a trip of over eighty miles.

She had told no one; however Elizabeth greeted her with the knowledge of her pregnancy and that the child was to be her Lord.

Lord, help me to “go with haste” to the needs of others. Make me more eager to respond to those who need my help, even before I am asked.
