Yesterday a man told me of how he has gone through several difficulties in his life. Because his past circumstances have been so hard, he decided to indulge in some heavy drinking to ease his pain. He told himself he would only drink for one month. This 30-day indulgence turned into four years of drinking and he sometimes drank a half gallon of liquor a day.
Now, after getting involved with the Indiana court system because of his drinking, he openly acknowledges the truth found in Prov. 20:1: “Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler; And whosoever erreth thereby is not wise.”
A new year has come. Make smart, wise, and Biblical choices.
