And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth the good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
The PGA Tour is dedicated to assisting numerous charities and raises millions of dollars each week. This giving is in addition to the causes supported by the individual members of the Tour. It is touching each year to see the work done by Jack’s tournament and hospital, the outstanding achievements of St. Jude hospital in the lives of children effected by cancer, and the dedication of the Thunderbirds at the Waste Management event. We all have needs in our lives whether it be health, financial or spiritual. God is willing to meet those needs. He has the ability to exceed what we feel is a sufficient meeting of the need. In the scripture above, Jesus performs his first public miracle in the New Testament in a seemingly benign cause. Weddings were a big deal during this time period. It was normal for the celebrations to last a week. Some historians point out the wedding hosts could even be charged if the invitees are not sufficiently served with food and drink. It was still a wedding however – no one was going to die, no one was blind or had a disease. Jesus not only showed he was capable, he revealed he had to the power to meet any need going above and beyond in terms of quality. God wants us to know he is able and willing to meet that need, others may consider minor, in our lives. Mary told the servants, “whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” We must first recognize we have a need or realize our glass is empty. Then, we must be obedient to His instructions and guidance in the matter. My prayer for today is to be willing to accept God’s presence in my life daily and bring every matter of life to Him. Often times we only call upon Him during times of disaster. He wants us to look to Him in the matters we take for granted as well. Look around! Not only do we get a sunrise each morning, we arise to see an artistic masterpiece. If we pray for new golf equipment, don’t be surprised if we get a Pro-V from time to time!
