Why Vinegar is Sometimes Better Than Honey

I had a dream about a month ago that I still remember today. It had to do with the quote, "You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." I am told that this quote means to treat someone kindly for your own personal gain. It can also mean to always treat someone kindly and they will be your friend.

In my dream, vinegar was better than honey. When someone uses honey, they get sticky and gooey. Honey needs to be kept in a special container and is very difficult to clean up if it is spilled. Honey is good, but if it was not for the cleaning properties of vinegar, honey would eventually have unpleasant things sticking to it.

If we are to be good friends to people, we need to apply vinegar to the honey that we apply to our friendships. If we don't apply some vinegar from time to time, to clean up our messes, then honey attracts debris and other things that we do not want.

Sometimes we may have a tendency to smother our friends with everything good and sweet. When we get upset or mad at other people, we do not want to tell them about it. We believe that the other person will be mad and not want to remain friends. This is why God created forgiveness. If we would all apply more vinegar to our relationships, to clean them up, our friendships could have a lot less debris or grudges.

This image has been with me for awhile and I don't usually remember my dreams. Maybe this has been something that can impress upon you also.

Blessings,
Jen
