Spiritual Food for Thought for the Weekend
“Drink Too Much?”
“Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.”
Personally, I believe too many Christians are being led astray in this area. For some of us, we pray too little, and we drink too much. In the name of Christian liberty, there are many believers who are so unwise in this area of drinking. If alcohol is the way you relax after a stressful day, or it is a way for you to feel more sociable, or you love being an expert at tasting wine or beer, I think you should try this experiment: Fast all forms of alcoholic beverages for a year. Try it and you might discover that you have allowed alcohol to have a stronger grip in your life than you would admit. I did say only a year .
Prayer: Lord, let me be guided by wisdom in this area and not just my desire. Amen.
Bible Reading for Today: Ezekiel 28
