We need to pursue intimacy with God daily.

Physical Truth: In ancient times, much of the water had a high alkaline content, and the pH could be neutralized somewhat by adding wine to the water. This was not the only method. Water could be made safe to drink by boiling, but that was time consuming and costly, since wood was scarce. The most common method of purifying water for drinking was to mix it with wine. Paul told Timothy to use no longer water, but to use wine for his stomach’s sake I Tim. 5:23.
