Jesus did many other things as well. If every one
of them were written down, I suppose that even
the whole world would not have room for
the books that would be written.
You would expect the Son of God to begin his ministry
with a spectacular miracle: raising someone from the dead,
reception than had sent in their rsvp cards, and now the
punch bowl had run dry. So Jesus turned water into wine.
Turning water into wine doesn’t bring anybody back from
the dead or free anyone from a life-threatening illness. It
does, however, reveal a God who is interested not only in the
life-and-death issues we face but also in our daily lives.
In the same way, the Lord works in even the mundane
moments of our lives. A relationship with a God who was
interested only in the big issues of life would be no more
personal than a relationship with the 911 operator. But our
infinite, almighty God chooses to relate to us on a more
intimate level — not only on the mountaintops but in the
dining rooms of our lives.
Prayer: Thank you, God, for the small miracles that show us
how much you love and care for us. Amen.
