Sweet Reminders of God's Good Provision: Always the Best Provision

And he said to him, "Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!"
John 2:10

Caveat emptor—"Let the buyer beware." Since a Supreme Court decision in 1817 that established the doctrine of caveat emptor, it has fallen to the buyer to assume responsibility for the value of the goods purchased. Only in recent years have consumer protection laws been passed that protect buyers from unscrupulous or duplicitous sellers. But if you were dealing with Jesus, you would have no worries—He always gives the best.

It was the custom at weddings to get the guests intoxicated, then, once their senses were dulled, finish off the night with the cheap stuff. But late in the celebration when the cheap wine had run out, Jesus turned water into the equivalent of a fine vintage wine. What Jesus did was typical of God—giving the very best every time. Romans 8:32 says that God gave us His Son—the very best He had. And by that gift, we know He will likewise give us everything we need.

There is no caveat emptor when we ask God for what we need. He is totally trustworthy—we can expect His best, whatever that turns out to be.

God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame.
