Love As the Best Wine

Have you ever noticed how often we use the word “like” in a sentence?  “I was like….it was like…”  We keep searching for what are feelings are like.  Very often we don’t fully understand what we feel until we find something in nature, for example, that connects us with what we feel.

The man in our reading who loves the woman, also looks for the beautiful world around him as a way to express how much he loves her.  He comes upon the idea and image of very delicious wine.

St. John in his Gospel uses the same image, linking Jesus with, “The best wine till now!”  (John 2:10)

 Song of Songs 7—8

Tuesdays are dedicated to the Old Testament books of history
and the Hebrew “Writings.”
This year in the Easter Season we read
Proverbs 10—12 and the Song of Songs.

These Firestarters are from a new edition of The Bible Through the Seasons being developed for families with children. For the Firestarters in the original edition, I recommend the ebook.  You will have the entire program of well over a thousand of these introductions with you on your phone or table! Check the menu options at the site for more information.
