He told them this parable: “No one tears a piece out of a new garment to patch an old one. Otherwise, they will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old.And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. *No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins. - Luke 5: 36-38

We are called to be a new wineskin… The person God wants you to be is a better person, more confident in yourself, less worried about what others think, doing right by God, helping others not so that they like you, but because God wants you to help them.

I beg you this week to be there new you, the person God wants you to be. Not the old self you have mauled out of! Not your self at home but be your new self this week.

Love God, love others, love yourself.
