Saving the Best for Last

When the host tasted the water that had become wine (he didn’t know what had just happened but the servants, of course, knew), he called out to the bridegroom, “Everybody I know begins with their finest wines and after the guests have had their fill brings in the cheap stuff. But you’ve saved the best till now!”

(John 2:9-10 MSG)

Back in the day, it was common to serve the finest wines first and after the guests’ taste buds were dulled, to serve the cheaper wine. But at the wedding Jesus attended, things were reversed – the cheap wine was served first and then the best. And usually that’s how Jesus operates. He always saves the best for last. But are we willing to wait for it? Oftentimes, we go with the flow and settle for the “cheap stuff” instead of wait for God to act on our behalf and experience the best that He has to offer. The bridegroom at the wedding of Cana was praised for being different because he had saved the best for last. Similarly, God will be glorified through our lives when we wait on Him to give us His best.

God saves the best for last, so don’t settle for the cheap stuff.
