Beyond a Wine Patch

October 16, 2017

“No one sews a patch of unshrunk/new cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse.”  Jesus said that in Matthew 9:16.

I don’t know much about sewing and patching but I get the idea.

So do you.

Then why do I try and slap a new covering on an old habit and think it’s going to make a difference?

You ever do that?

Let’s try the principle that comes next: “Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins,” Jesus says in Matthew 9:17. 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.”

Newness seems to need newness.
