Let me first say that by the grace of God, I’ve never been addicted to illegal or prescription drugs.
I’ve also been gulity of looking in disdain at those

who are. I’ve self-righteously shaken my head at those who have overdosed or even died.

Some were trying to escape the realities of life…

Some became addicted after surgery, medical treatment, or due to a chronic (no pun intended) or medical treatment…

Others were addicted through recreational use or just to ‘unwind’…

But, the end result was the same…addiction.

So, before you judge anyone in any of these situations or scenarios, think about this…

What if either of these were illegal, or deadly (and some are depending on your state of health…

Coffee…

Cola…

Over-the-counter pain killers…

Red Bull…

5-Hour Energy…

Beer…

Wine…

Sugar.

I think you get the picture. What if coffee (which many admit they HAVE to HAVE) were as addictive and deadly as opioids?

When you see someone hit rock bottom or even die because of your addiction, stop and pray for them. Then stop and examine your life and your…


ACCEPAPTABLE ADDICTIONS…


Then empathize with them.

But, please don’t judge them. Because the ‘addiction’ comes from the same weakess in all of our flesh, and but by the grace of God, whether you admit it or not…

Could be you.

BE BLESSTIFIED!
Matthew 7:1-2 (NKJV)

Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

But what of any of these were illegal or deadly, (and depending on your health, some are depending on your health.

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
