WHAT CHICK-FIL-A & THE LIQUOR STORE HAVE IN COMMON…

One of the most important things in the life of any disciple of Christ is balance.

God doesn’t expect us to be so serious that no one can stand to be around us. However, He doesn’t want how we choose to have fun to destroy our testimony for Him.

One of the greatest parts of contention for many Christians is drinking alcohol.

While the Bible says don’t be drunk with wine (Ephesians 5:8), it also says drink a little wine for your stomach’s sake. (1 Timothy 5:23)

The religious leaders called Yeshua a ‘winebibber’ because He drank wine, yet He never got drunk (Matthew 11:19).

Psalm 104:15 says wine ‘gladdens the heart of man’.

So, yes I will drink an occasional glass of wine or enjoy a drink during quality time with my wife, but I never get drunk.

There’s one thing we have both noticed when we go to the liquor store to purchase wine…


In general, people who are shopping in liquor stores are happy, cheerful, friendly, polite…and did I say happy? I’m not talking about drunks either.

We’ve noticed that for the most part, the people who work in liquor stores are very friendly and accommodating.


Some church people could learn a lot from a trip to the liquor store instead of judging those who go in…especially if they are ‘sending someone else’ to purchase their liquor😀

The liquor store kind of reminds me of Chick-fil-A. People in Chick-fil-A are always so happy. And, the workers, for the most part are eager to tell you, “MY PLEASURE!”

Of course every liquor store or Chick-fil-A isn’t like this, but anecdotally I’ve found it to be true.

Remember, not getting enough of something is just as unhealthy as getting too much…physically, emotionally and spiritually. One of the keys to life is balance.

I THINK I’LL RELAX & STUDY MY BIBLE WITH A GLASS OF WINE (from my archives)…

MORE RIGHTEOUS THAN JESUS?

BE BLESSTIFIED!

  1. By the grace of God I celebrate 7 years of sobriety today. This coming from a girl who grew up in the church, and as well at the young age of 20 married into one of the largest non-denominational churches in my city. Fast forward both my ex-husband, and I found solace in alcohol. We cast God aside. Fast forward to now. I am sober, he sadly is not. I am close with his parents, and siblings. We all pray for Him to find what I have found. I surrendered all me! I was such a poor example of a Godly woman. I do not dwell there though, because I have been made new in Christ my redeemer. He set me free, and the woe is me is over. I have been given a new breath of life! He gets all the glory for my story! He is so faithful to complete the work he started! Amen!
