So I heard the coolest perspective on John 2:1-8 today which was today’s Gospel reading. The visiting priest led me to another interpretation of this 2nd Mystery of Light – the wedding at Cana. The popular spin on this is that it is used to explain Mary’s role in interceding on our behalf to her Son, Jesus, who was not yet ready to perform any miracles, right? Well, it goes much deeper than this.
We would all deny that we are too busy for God. “Ofcourse we aren’t too busy for God. He is our creator and we give Him time ,” we say. But how much time, really?
Then it hit me that it’s not about being too busy for God, it’s about losing focus. When we lose focus we do not ABIDE in God.
The Greek/Hebrew word for Abide has 5 different words which stem from “meno” which means “intensive.”
Below are excerpts from a Saturday workshop we attended some months ago. I found it helpful to refocus on it, as I await the activation of the gifts I received as a teacher and new gifts to enable me become a complete teacher.
