Obedience To God’s Will Before Self Thoughts

Luke 1:38And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

Mary agrees with doing the Will of God, even though she realizes what it will mean to her, and her reputation.
I need to put God first in all things. The thoughts of people do not matter, as long as I am sure I am following the Will of God.

How often is the first thought, when Holy Spirit directs, “how will this affect my time, my activities, the thoughts of others toward me?”
Lord Jesus, forgive me, teach me to be like Mary, your Mother, who was willing to be a servant of Your Father, our Father, ahead of thoughts for herself.
