EMBRACE NEW STRUCTURES // SEPTEMBER 20, 2023
And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.
Jesus talked about wine as new content and the wine skin as the structure. Structures may need changing, but we still need structure to survive.
So how do we know when wineskins need adjusting? We want to devise structures not based on where we've been but on where we want to go. If we need more flexibility in our life, which structures can we put in place to help us get there? If we need healthier relationships, which mentors can we bring into our life? Which books can we read? Wineskins, aka structures, aren't meant to stay the same forever because we don't stay the same. As we grow and desire different things, our structures can adjust to our needs.
Which wineskins do you need to thrive in this season of your life? You need new methods no matter the decade you're in! Spend time today setting personal goals along with a timeframe on when to accomplish them. Which daily habits and new structures do you need in place to accomplish them? Small daily habits can make a big impact on your life!
