What if Cana Went Like This (A Lenten Reflection)

You know from my Fly on the Wall post that the Wedding at Cana is one of three biblical scenes I would love to go back and watch. 

But what if that event went like this ....

Mary:  They have no wine.

Jesus:  Woman what does your concern have to do with me.  My hour has not yet come.

Mary (to servant):  Do whatever He tells you.

Jesus (to servant):  Fill the jars with water.

Servant:  No.

Imagine that?  Imagine if the servant flat out refused to follow Christ's request?  Told Him no.  Turned away from Him.   Decided to do his own thing instead.

Crazy right?



We do it every day.

Your post has helped reaffirm something I've felt God calling me to do today.
May we listen to His voice when he calls, even if we won't be perfect at it. I think God is happy when he make a sacrifice for Him. And we will be blessed :)

You're right, Michael, we do it every day. Imagine how many miracles we have missed because of our stubborn natures. Great post!

Perhaps ... "we do it every day" because we lack Faith.

Not disobedience, but hesitation.

Which one is worst?

God bless.

Oops. That question mark was a typo! But your post did find me asking myself why I say no to God...

Jade: Great point! I'm trying real hard to get better at the listening part ...

Mary: I know, it hurts to think of how many I miss ... like that last breath I just took ....

Victor: Mmmmm ... might be a good topic for a future post?

Andie, HC, Anon: Thanks so much for the comments
