DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 28; Job 36-37; Matt. 15:1-28

His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. John 2:5

As awareness of the wine shortage spread amongst the wedding guests, we can be sure that many possible solutions were proposed. Mary’s, however, was the best! It was rooted in her unwavering trust in the uniqueness of the Son she had borne. Today, multitudes around us have problems, fears and false hopes. We know the One who is the Answer. Have we the conviction and the courage to point others to Him, as Mary did? —George Hall

Can we whose souls are lighted with wisdom from on high;
Can we to men benighted, the lamp of life deny?
Salvation! O salvation! The joyful sound proclaim,
Till men of every nation have heard the Saviour’s name!—Reginald Heber
