Mary Was a “Just Do It!” Kind of Girl

Mary had some sound advice for the servants at the wedding feast in Cana she and Jesus and some of His disciples attended.

To make a long story short, the feast ran out of wine and Mary went to Jesus with the problem. But Jesus was not interested in their shortage of wine and said so when He said to Mary, “What concern is that of mine?”

Mary was interceding for her friends and she knew Jesus could take care of the situation. When He told her it wasn’t any of His concern, she didn’t get upset, she turned to the servants standing nearby and said, “Whatever He tells you to do, do it!”

Mary was rewarded for her intercession for the newly married couple when Jesus responded to her faith and turned the water to wine. And how wise we would look in the eyes of God if we did what Jesus commanded us to do when He told us to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love our neighbor as much as we love ourselves. Can you imagine the miracles that would be taking place all around us on a daily basis? Our friends would be blessed, we would be blessed and the cities in which we live would be blessed because we were doing what Jesus instructed us to do. Can you say, “Amen.” DThrash

    Thank you Aristeo for your comment. Mary was an outstanding witness for God in her courage, in her faith, in her willingness to intercede for family or friends, in her care and compassion for all the saints. DThrash

    Did you know that the Blessed Virgin Mary is one of the two women mentioned in the Holy Bible? The verses are Matthew 24:41 and Luke 17:35. Just think: why was the mother of Jesus present at the wedding at Cana if she was not related to the newly-weds? Also, why was the Blessed Virgin Mary supervising the filling of jars with water? If you were a guest in a wedding banquet, would you be concerned like what she did?
