Thought to Ponder: GOD IS NOT CHEAP!

John 2:6, “And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.”
Read:JOHN 2:1-11                                                                                                                                                God has been represented as a God who is on a tight budget and who disapproves of us asking for anything more than just the necessities. However, this first miracle of Jesus disproves that.
Scholars suggest that a firkin was equal to about nine U.S. gallons. This would mean that six of these water pots would hold 162 gallons of wine. That’s a lot of wine!
In a similar instance when Jesus was asked to provide food for the multitude, He once again supplied more than the need (Mt. 14:15-21; Mk. 6:33-44; Lk. 9:11-17).
These examples show the Lord’s willingness to meet our needs with plenty to spare. God is not cheap!(AW)
