THE MENACE OF SUBSTANCE ABUSE

TEXT: And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent (Genesis 9:21).

John Michael “Ozzy” Osborne, an English Singer said “I am a raging alcoholic and a raging addict and I didn’t want to see my kids do the same thing.” Ms Susanna Mushatt Jones was reported as the oldest living person at the age of 117 years. In 2016, she claimed her long life was due to “no smoking” principle from childhood.

The former of the two characters mentioned above showed regrets of substance misuse and the latter, the blessings of abstinence from it. All things created by God are good if used rightly but when misused they cause harm.

In our text, Noah, the holy head of eight survivors of God’s flood of judgment, became drunk and naked. In the rage of discovering the mockery of one of his sons, he placed a curse on him. The influence of drugs, alcohol, smoking leads to lots of vices such as armed robbery, rape and violence.

The Menace of Substance Abuse by Pastor W.F Kumuyi

All God-fearing youths are warned to desist from substance abuse. The answer to drunkenness is to say “NO” to intoxicants. Substance abuse shortens the user’s life span. Flee drug abuse.

CHALLENGE: A way out of shame is rejection of intoxicants

QUOTE: Flee drug abuse.

PRAYER: Lord, help me never to have appetite for anything harmful.

FURTHER READING: Proverbs 23:29-35
