Most of us were bought up on the advice to
"Listen to your mum"
So when Jesus mum, Mary, says something it's got to be in our best interest to listen.
We all know the story of when Jesus turned the water in wine (John 2) but we often overlook Mary's input into the miracle taking place.
Mary spoke five words that should still echo today in the life of the Christian but unfortunately we get drunk on the miracles and water-down the back-story that sparkles with treasure.
Mary says to the servants at the wedding
"Do whatever he tells you." John 2:5
Is it possible that the reason we don't see an abundance of miracles today is because we don't follow Jesus mum's advice?
