Scripture: Matthew 9:17 Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.” (NIV)
Nugget: There are some things that we have to change about ourselves. We cannot do things “the way we have always done” if we’re trying to progress & move forward in the Lord.
For instance, imagine if you were still riding around on the bicycle with training wheels on it; where would you go? Life is similar to this; as time goes on, we should be progressing as well. We shouldn’t be in the same place day after day, with no growth in sight.
This scripture references pouring new wine into old wineskins & how the wineskins will be ruined if this happens. We should continually try to pour something new into our lives, our days, our attitudes, our jobs, our families, etc.
What can you do today to show that you’re progressively moving forward in the Lord?
Quote: “Growth begins when we start to accept our own weakness.” -Jean Vanier
