And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard. Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.
-vineyard in Hebrew is written as kerem & is defined as a plantation of grape vines used to make wine, grape juice etc. Various research studies have found that eating of grapes has numerous health benefits like prevention of cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, constipation, treatment of acne etc.
-Noah planted vineyards after the flood. From his three sons Shem, Ham & Japheth, the whole earth was populated. Gods command to Adam, be fruitful, multiply, fill & subdue the earth became a reality with Noah & his sons. One day Noah became drunk with wine & his son; Ham saw his nakedness, unlike Shem & Japheth who covered him with a garment. As a result; Hams seed Canaan was Cursed & his descendants became servants of Shem & Japheth.
-King Solomon makes mention in Prov 31:4-7 that wine is not for kings & princes lest they forget the law & pervert justice but for those who are perishing. Kings & princes are leaders whose decisions should not be swayed by partaking of wine. Christ is the true vine & we are the branches. May we submit all to Him & He will direct us in all our decisions.
We submit our lives to You Father; help us to lead in Your wisdom. Be with us as we take a leadership role in our lives that our decisions may not be swayed by the wrong inclinations. May we be anchored to You always, for You are our strength. All glory, honour & praise belong to You. Amen
