Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud to God:
“At that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps and punish those who are complacent, who are like wine left on its dregs…”
This explains so much, Jesus!
During the aging process, the winemaker cannot allow the wine to sit for too long on the strong, bitter sediment that settles to the bottom – the fine residue from the skin, seeds and stems left over from the grape-pressing process.
If the wine sits too long on its dregs, it becomes bitter.
So will I.
So that’s why You keep pouring me out!
No sooner do I get settled
than You pour me into a different container
one I’m not used to
out of my comfort zone
separating me from the familiar
to keep me from becoming complacent
to everyone who takes a taste.
