From two readings in the daily lectionary. On the same day.
“Do not look at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup and goes down smoothly.
At the last it bites like a serpent, and stings like an adder.” (Proverbs 23)
“No longer drink only water, but take a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments.” (1 Timothy 5:23)
