Ron: Do you always give your best?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Ok, have you ever given someone second best, because you were pressured into doing something nice for them? Well, not Jesus. In John 2 in the Bible, we find Him at a wedding. When the wine runs out his mom wants Him to make more. She knows he can, but the timing is not right for Him. But, she persists. So, He turns water into wine. Good wine!

Now in those situations, I’m tempted to give second best. You know, do it begrudgingly, just to make a point. But not Jesus. He gives the best. Let’s be like this because when grace gives its best, others notice—and they drink it in. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
