Anthony Gammage – Luke 1:46-53
 And Mary said,
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
 for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
 for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
 And his mercy is for those who fear him
from generation to generation.
 He has shown strength with his arm;
he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
 he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
and exalted those of humble estate;
 he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
 He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
 as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”
 And Mary remained with her about three months and returned to her home.
 Oh, magnify the LORD with me,
and let us exalt his name together!
 I will praise the name of God with a song;
I will magnify him with thanksgiving.
 Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him?
 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
1 Corinthians 1:27
 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong;
