I read a superb article called “Four Reasons I Don’t Drink Alcohol” which are contentment, love, sobriety, & wisdom. I encourage you to read the article linked above and to think about your heart desires on this issue and why his reasons ultimately are for the glory of God.

Of course, for my brethren who do drink alcohol, I completely understand your stance to be biblical and recognize your freedom to do so. I wrote about it in The Heart of Addiction so I am certainly not condemning you because you are free to choose according to my study of the Scriptures on this topic.

Nevertheless, it is always good to read challenging articles like this one. It comes down to a matter of the heart and a motive to glorify the Lord.
