WISDOM FROM THE BOOK OF PROVERBS
ten reasons not to drink
read Proverbs 20:1; 23:29-35
in his warning against drunkenness, this wise teacher presents a case study of a drunk. here are ten reasons why not to drink:
1. you will never get drunk [20:1]
2. your headaches will not be self-inflicted [23:29]
3. you’ll never have to deal with a hangover [23:29]
4. you won’t be deceived by alcohol’s shallow promises [23:31]
5. you will never be bitten by the effects of alcohol [23:32]
6. you won’t be haunted by hallucinations [23:33]
7. you’ll never have to worry about killing someone while driving drunk [23:34]
8. you’ll never be found hanging from the chandelier [23:34]
9. you’ll never get into a fight because alcohol fooled you into thinking you were tougher than you really are [23:35]
10. you’ll never become an alcoholic [23:35] your children will never say that their first experience in drinking was seeing mom and dad drink.
ACTION: this isn’t a debate about whether a christian has the freedom to drink alcohol. the only thought is this: if there is so much personal, family and community danger and sorrow arising from drunkenness, what is the wise thing to do ???…

    Umm…? Not get drunk? The bible is clear about drunkenness, there are more than enough verses to support this. How about reading John 2:3? Jesus first miracle, as you know, it would also seem to me that wine is portrayed as one of the pleasures of life. Isaiah 25:6. Then at sometimes it’s just good to say no, Romans 14:21.
