When I saw this video about blending wine, what they eloquently call “hyperdecanting”, and making a $7 bottle taste like a more expensive one, my thoughts went immediately to the comparison between it and our spiritual life.
Cheese alert… We put our $7 selves in the blender of life, blend for 30 seconds to add some air (Holy Spirit), age 5 years (wisdom) and come out tasting like at least a $50 self.
Hey, it all works out in my head. Plus I really wanted a way to write about Jesus and wine.
But seriously, if this can be taken seriously, let’s “blend” ourselves, add a little Holy Spirit and some wisdom and see if we don’t taste better. It could work!
