The Danger of Overdrinking

Proverbs 20:1: “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.

In Proverb 20:1 we are given the example of violent behavior as a result of drinking too much. This can include violent physical actions (such as physical abuse or a tendency toward picking a fight) or verbal abuse (hateful words spoken to hurt and demean another person). This often happens toward a spouse or family member, causing serious damage to relationships.

The point of the verse: If you drink, drink responsibly. Drunkenness is a sin that can cause destructive results in a person’s life (Galatians 5:19-21; 1 Corinthians 6:10).

Be blessed and take care of each other.
