Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara says one should not use the second cup of wine for the kos shel bracha since he may incur harm (from the demons) hence it is not a proper fulfillment of the verse ‘hichon likras elokecha’ which requires one to properly prepare when approaching Hashem.  Why does the Gemara need to provide another reason for this prohibition; certainly it is forbidden if it may cause harm?
