new wine in the new year

“Neither do men 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.” (Matthew 9:17)

Thank you, O Lord, that in this New Year you long to do something new and beautiful in us.  Help us to have the wisdom and the courage and the grace to receive that “new wine” and to nurture it and give it the space and the time in needs to grow and take root within us.  Forgive us for our tendency to try and put this new wine into the same old wineskins.  Amen.
