Are You Vintage Wine Or Sour Grapes?
You know the longer wine ages the better it is. But you have to have the right key ingredients at the beginning. And yes, later in the process if adjustments are needed you have time to do that as well. A vine is a plant that needs to be supported by something solid and steadfast. Grapes are the fruit of the vine. In life we can use this analogy when we go through our daily activities. We can call on God for support. Ask God for his care and guidance with his love unconditional, or we can wither on the vine and become sour and bitter. We have a choice. The longer we let God's word meld into us, the sweeter we are. The better our vintage. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self by wasting it away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction, is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison. As we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, the things that are unseen are eternal.
