The Menace Of Substance Abuse.

Key Verse

“And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent” (Genesis 9:21).

Text — Genesis 9:20-27


It was John Michael ‘Ozzy’ Osborne, an English singer who said, “I am a raging alcoholic and a raging addict and I didn’t want to see my kids do the same thing.” Ms. Susanna Mushatt Jones was reported as the oldest living person, being 117 years. In 2016, she claimed her long life was due to ‘no smoking’ principle from childhood. John Osborne showed regrets for substance misuse but Jones, blessings of abstinence.

All things created by God are good if used rightly but when misused, they cause harm. In our Bible text, Noah, the holy head of eight survivors of God’s flood of judgment, became drunk and naked. In the rage of discovering the mockery of one of his sons, he placed a curse on him. The influence of drugs, alcohol, and smoking leads to lots of vices such as armed robbery, rape and murder. All God-fearing youths are warned to desist from substance abuse. Say “NO” to drunkenness, hard drugs and smoking. Godly youths are also expected to preach to their friends who are drug addicts so they can embrace Christ.


Desist from substance abuse


Abstain from any risky habit – substance abuse is.

Prayer for today

O God, help me to avoid anything harmful, in Jesus’ name.
