An outline for a Mothering Sunday talk from John 2:1-11

Two things we can learn from Mary in this true story from the Bible (probably not entirely original to me):

(1) Mary does the right thing: she brings the problem to Jesus, knowing that he cares and can help (v3). We would do well to bring our problems to Jesus in prayer. He cares for us and can help us.

(2) Mary gives some excellent advice: she tells the servant to do whatever Jesus tells them, even though it must have seemed strange to them (v5). We should always do what Jesus tells us to do in his Word, the Bible, even if it seems strange to us.
