John 2:3-5 The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus’ mother told him, “They have no more wine.” “Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.” But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
Moms can be persistent. Sometimes they can actually be pushy. Here we see an example of Jesus who turned to his mother when she tells him of a problem that she needs help with.
Jesus tells her in paraphrase. “It’s not time for me to begin with my miracles and work.”
I think you need to see how his mother responded. She didn’t say anything. She just turned to two other servants there and told them to “Do whatever he tells you to do.”
I wonder what her look was when she turned to her son, Jesus. All I can think is what a pushy mom.
Sometimes, we do things that we would otherwise not do because of our moms pushing with encouragement and a purpose of good for us.
If you have a mom, you probably have times that you can remember when you have felt her pushing. Sometimes, this was for the better, sometimes, not so good. The point is that you have to remember the things that your mom presses you forward about are not always the right decision; but one thing is for sure, they are with a purpose to encourage and press you forward in life in a positive way.
Usually, when you follow your mom’s advice, it’s for the most part a good thing. This Mother’s Day weekend look at your mom, and look past what you may perceive as her faults. Understand that everything that she does concerning you is with the hope that it will make you better.
Tell your mom you love her. Happy Mother’s Day.
Have a blessed weekend.
