For the heavy drinker and the glutton will come to poverty, And drowsiness will clothe one with rags.Proverbs 23:21(NASB)
Do you suffer from hangovers? Do you stumble friends who have high propensity to drink on sight?
The Bible says do not be drunk with wine. .. but you can take it for medicine. If you do drink a little and can control the amount you, you have a responsibility not to tempt a weaker brother or sister who will drink beyond personal limits. You do not want to be responsible for a brother or sister to land up in rags because of drunkeness.
In these days of rich breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea and dinner buffets, there could be the temptation to over-eat and over-pay for food. Eat if you need and also enjoy. However, do not gorge till your health is impacted just to get value for the sometimes exorbitant buffet costs.
Be checked – cut alcohol and too much food and be a good testimony of discipline and be led by the Holy Spirit to honor Him with your body which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. You can ovecome with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Dear Lord, Jesus please help me to overcome my excesses in alcohol and gorging Only You can help me. Amen.
