“And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, they have no wine”. John 2:3
Every relationship exists in phases. Be it courtship, friendship, partnership, fellowship, leadership or even marriage. The earlier we understand the phase of our relationship the better. It reduces strains, stress and frictions
There are times in our relationship when the first wine finishes and the intoxication we once enjoyed fades. During these times we should learn not to take irrational decisions that will permanently affect us negatively. Rather it is the time we must call on Jesus to change our water to wine.
When we start experiencing unnecessary hitch and frequent quarrel in our relationship. We should recognize and admit that our first wine is finishing. We should not be too proud to admit and accept the phase our relationship has gotten into. It is the time to sit together and ask Jesus into that relationship. He specializes in supplying the second wine, which is always better than the first.
However, we should be wise enough to know the timing and purpose of certain relationship. We must be able to identify the relationships that are for a reason, a season or for a lifetime. It will help us to peacefully end a seasonal relationship that has expired.
