Doing mom a solid

Mary: They’ve run out of wine.
Jesus: Dear lady, that’s not our problem. It’s not my time yet.
Mary: (to wine stewards) Do whatever he tell you. Jn. 2:3-5

There are probably all sorts of theological theories on why Jesus would start doing miracles before He was ready, and on why He would let his first miracle be something like making booze for a party (or sparkling grape juice depending on your theological leanings). Maybe His point is that His every act isn’t a big hairy theological deal or the fulfillment of a prophecy. Sometimes He just does a solid for people He loves because they ask.

Lord, somebody I know just needs a solid.
