A mother will push you to reveal your true character and ability, so you will be a help to someone else.

Who do you invited when you’re planning a wedding? Family, friends, friends of friends and coworkers. Some of them, hood, some of them professional, some of them just ordinary people, who you care about. Some of them broke, some of middle class, and some of them well off. Some of them black, some of them white and some of them in between. We invite them all to celebrate, but we make the list broad because you never know what any of them may do for you. Truth is, one of them may be able to save the day, if something was to go wrong.
That is the case in our text today. The mother of Jesus, along with Jesus and his disciples were invited to a wedding that took a turn for the worst. If it had not been for a push by the mother of Jesus and act of obedience on His part, this whole wedding could have been a disaster. Maybe this sermon will encourage you to always include Jesus on your invitation list. Maybe it will help you to listen your mother when she pushes you to do what she knows your capable of doing.
A mother will push you to reveal your true character and ability, so you will be a help to someone else.
