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
