(Proverbs 20:1 KJV) Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
I read through Proverbs every month. When you do something this way it is easy to get in a rut and go through the motions. One of the things I do to make the reading fresh is to start reading at a different part of the chapter each month. Since it is January I am beginning in the first verse. It is amazing how often there are just little reminders about things we should already know. This verse is one of them.
I don’t drink. Maybe you do. I do not believe you will be cast into the depths of hell for having a glass of wine with dinner. Both of us have a simple, clear message here. Watch out for the dangers of alcohol.
So? Do I need this? Not today. Hopefully, never. Do you? This is a simple word from your maker not this blogger.
