Where is the Scriptural Justification that says I should Honor Mary?

Question:

As an Evangelical, I believe in measuring things against the Bible. Where is the scriptural justification that says I should honor Mary or treat her different from any other woman?

Answer:

Look at Luke 1:48, where Mary speaks by the Holy Spirit and says, “From now on all generations will call me blessed.” Have you called her “blessed” lately?
