My wife and I have been reading through the book of proverbs in our devotions and as a study guide have been using one of Warren Wiersbe's Be Attitude books "Be Skillful" which is on the book of Proverbs. While reading proverbs one morn we came across this verse: Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. prov 23:31 What exactly is the author referring to here? The verse seems to be warning us about a certain kind of wine. I am not a teetotaller and will have a glass of wine with dinner on occasion when my wife and I go out so I am not trying to trap anyone here but just would like to know what some of you think of this verse. Could it be referring to the chemical reaction that takes place as grape juice ferments?
