Mary went on to say God is mighty; God does great things; God is perfect; God is strong (see Luke 1:49-51). With every word, Mary showed that God is big. Unlike the things you magnified, God is always big. In fact, no matter how many good things you say about God, they will never be enough. He's that great.
What could you say to magnify God?
You don't magnify people the way you magnify God, but you can also use your words to make people feel bigger and better. Your words can make people feel big, special, and important. Your words can make people feel small, silly, and unimportant.
Your words can build people up.
Your words can tear people down.
Take turns with the magnifying glass. Look through it to the person on your right. Tell her what you like about him or her. For example, you could say "Mom, I like the blueberry pancakes you make," or "You have a pretty smile," or "You're a good hockey player." Hand the magnifying glass to the next person and let him take a turn.
