And Mary rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda.
(Luke 1:39)

PROMPT SERVICE: Mary went to Elizabeth in haste, because her loving sympathy and desire to be of assistance impelled her to go to her cousin with as little delay as possible. Her example teaches us that we should never be dilatory in the performance of any good work. Let us never put off till tomorrow what we can do today.
