Woes From Wine

Key Verse

“Who hath woe? Who hath sorrow? Who hath contentions? Who hath babbling? Who hath wounds without cause? Who hath redness of eyes” (Proverbs 23:29).

Text — Proverbs 23:29-35


“Alcohol is a very effective dissolving agent. It dissolves families, marriages, friendship, jobs…but never problems,” someone wisely declared. This quote corroborates the scripture in our memory verse, which itemizes all the woes that people heap upon themselves just by alcohol intake. Despite warnings by secular, as well as religious organisations about the health and other hazards traceable to alcohol, its consumption, particularly amongst young people, is not abating. Cliff Cole lent his voice to the warnings against alcohol when he opined that, “Balanced judgment will certify that intoxicating liquor leaves an unbalanced budget, unbalanced men and women, an unbalanced home and an unbalanced social order.”

No one in his right mind would want to put poison in his brain. But that is what alcohol is – a poison. Coerced by peer pressure and blinded by sin, many young people resort to alcohol for entertainment, to escape depression, ease tension or just to acquire courage for a criminal act. But they end up attracting greater evils upon themselves. Don’t wait until it is too late. Jesus can set you free.


Jesus can set you free


Flee alcohol, flee woes!

Prayer for today

Deliver me, Lord, from the snares of alcoholism.
