1Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler;
whoever is led astray by them is not wise.
I am asked often if the Bible tells us not to drink alcohol. I thought this verse explains it very simply. The Bible doesn’t directly say do not drink alcohol, but it does warn against the consequences of drunkenness and addiction. This verse reminds us that anything that we put above God in our life is leading us in the wrong direction.
5The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters,
but one who has insight draws them out.
6 Many claim to have unfailing love,
but a faithful person who can find?
24 A person’s steps are directed by the Lord.
How then can anyone understand their own way?
These verses tell us that asking God to lead our lives is the best way to live.
Reflect on these verses this week and ask God to soften your heart to God’s leading.
