THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

((Thanks to Ben for reminding me of this ole joke.))

Police pulled a man over at 1:00am for driving erratically.

Policeman: Where are you going?
Driver: Actually, I’m headed for a lecture on alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body.

Policeman: And where would you find a lecture like that at 1:00am?
Driver: Home – my wife gives ‘em.

Prov 23:31-32
31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.
32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.

Alcoholic beverages may look, smell and taste good; but
they do great damage to self-control of will, and to the body!

It may be “normal social behavior” to drink with friends; but
alcohol is a terribly addictive drug!

It has been proven that, only a few drinks each evening, can actually “pickle” the brain over time.

The brain actually works on electric impulse traveling from one cell to another.
Alcohol shrinks brain cells immediately, reducing the speed with which electric impulses can travel.
That’s why, when a person is drunk, their response time is slow.

For instance, the response time of the foot from the accelerator to the brake pedal is reduce by
ONE-FIFTH with the consumption of only two beers!!

That could reduce the time to stop quickly while driving!

Over a period of time, alcohol consumption will actually KEEP the brain cells reduced in size.
That’s why an alcoholic cannot respond quickly in physical fashion.
And, that’s why an alcoholic cannot think properly.

Remember, the Word of God is ALWAYS truth!
The more scientists study chemical action and reaction, the more is seen that God is ALWAYS right!

Love ya,
