The Jesus Tree–Day Five

The reading today came from John 2:1-12, in which Jesus performed His first miracle–turning water into wine at the wedding feast at Cana. This has always been an interesting story to me, because of Mary’s actions. She complains to her Son, and then when He chastises her, she goes to the servants anyway, and tells them to do whatever Jesus says. That’s a mother for you–complete faith in her Son, and ready to brag about Him to anyone who will listen. Plus, it probably made her look really good to play the whole “My Son is the Son of God,” card! So, not only do we see Jesus as God as He does this miracle, we also see how very human His mother is.
