New Wine – Old Wineskins

In the gospel of Matthew, Mark and Luke, Jesus teaches in a parable about “putting New wine into old wineskins”.  In ancient days, wine was kept in wineskins, which were skins of sheep or goats with the skin of the legs sewn up, and the neck serving as a mouth of the bottle. “Old wine skin bottles” would have lost their original flexibility and become dry and tough, if used the skins will be destroyed and the wine is lost. Trying to put new wine in old wine skins just wouldn’t work.

Expecting new ideas to work when a person continues to procrastinate, has poor self-discipline or holds on to the past, will hinder their new ideas from becoming successful.
