The text of the Kiddush reminds us that the choice to uphold the sacred is in our hands. we do not directly bless wine, or praise its sweetness. Rather, we thank G-d for the fruit of the vine. That fruit can also be used to make vinegar, which is sharp and bitter. Our actions determine whether this sacred moment in time inspires bitterness or sweetness, complacency or action.
We lift the third cup - but do not drink as the work is not done yet.
