It can be really tempting to join friends in eating and drinking too much. It’s not so fun to be poor, too tired to work and dressed in rags. Here’s some help from Proverbs 23:

‘Listen, my son, and be wise, and keep your heart on the right path. Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags’ (Proverbs 23v19-21).

How easily do your cravings get the better of you? What would it take to be wise and keep your heart on the right path? God’s presence in us brings both wisdom and strength to resist temptation – invite God to be with you and live well! #wisewords #murrayt
