In our everyday lives, alcohol is everywhere served at holiday celebrations, advertised on billboards, and sitting in our kitchen cabinets. Drinking can be a lot of fun. But why does it sometimes turn into a problem? And what does it mean to drink responsibly?
I want to share my experience and the wisdom God has imparted to me regarding alcohol consumption. I believe that every person was intended to be able to drink and be merry. Jesus’ first miracle was changing water into wine. If God did not approve of alcohol, why did He not transform the water into milk instead? Ecclesiastes 9:7 reads, “Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for God has already approved what you do.” By His grace, He has made known that He wants you to be happy and not struggle through life.
