Daily Bible Reading: Luke 5:17 – 39
Verse of the Day: Luke 5:37 – “ And no man putteth new wine into old wine-skins; else the new wine will burst the skins, and itself will be spilled, and the skins will perish.”
We spend a lot of time in our religious circles holding on to traditions and struggling over any change that we might face in presenting the message of Salvation through Jesus Christ.
I was meditating on this verse and saw something in it to consider. Jesus is making a point that we must be concerned with what is the main thing, and not be hung up on the secondary items.
The wine in this passage is the main thing. It is what is important. It stands for the gospel, timeless and ageless. The wineskins are the secondary, structure, methods, traditions, etc. We need to keep our focus on the main thing and use whatever secondary things can make it successful. Keep the main thing the main thing.
Prayer: Father, help me keep the main thing the main thing every day. Amen.
