I have to tell you, this is a question that bothers adults as well. When you are a Christian, it’s so hard to watch another Christian make bad choices. It often makes you question if they are truly a follower of Christ. Proverbs 13:5 says "The righteous hate what is false."
There are two sides to this question, though.
Why did God choose Mary to be Jesus's mother? I know she was a good person, but there were a lot of other good women around at that time too. So why Mary? --- Lauren, age 10
That's a good question. When she was chosen, Mary was an ordinary teenaged girl. She hadn't won any beauty contests. She'd never gotten the trophy for best speller. She didn't even have a Nobel Prize.
So why Mary and not someone else? Mary was special because she possessed the qualities God wanted in the mother of his Son: Courage, willingness, and love for God.
Why these particular traits?
I have been lying for years and just can't stop! I have always gained trust and lost it and gained it back and then lost it again. How can I regain my mom and dad's trust for good?

That you really want to make positive changes in your life is a great start.
