Mother's Day post - the best advice from one of history's most revered mothers.
The Virgin Mary is one of the most famous and revered mothers in Christendom.
And as Mother's Day has been set aside to recognize mothers - without mothers none of us would be here - it seems fitting to offer tribute to this most famous of mothers, who to this day has given us the most excellent advice.
Mary was blessed among women in many ways (reference: Luke 1:42):
1. God chose this maid of humble birth as the vessel to bring the Son of God into the world. (reference: Luke 1:26-38 )
2. She was the only person on record to have witnessed both the birth of Jesus and His death. (reference: Luke 2:1-20 and John 19:25-27)
3. After the resurrection of Jesus, she was numbered among the faithful, praying in Jerusalem, waiting till Pentecost to witness the birth of the Church. (reference: Acts 1:14)
4. And Jesus' first miracle, turning water into wine, was done at her request at a wedding in Cana, which started his public ministry on earth. (reference: John 2:1-11)
And Johnny Cash sings about this miracle - as well as more miracles - in this clip below:
