BEFORE YOU JUDGE A DRUG ADDICT, READ THIS…

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 of their 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.
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!

  1. Rambling:

    I have an alcoholic brother -I’ve gone down many roads with him- now his addiction is leading him to be hateful to his bride- what now?
    In all seriousness I pray my coffee “addiction” doesn’t cause me to treat my children/husband like that 💔
    I’ve been addicted to many things and I KNOW it IS The LORD that set me free and keeps me away! I’ve been very grateful to know that each time a chain to an addiction has been broken by The Lord that if the world becomes crazier then it is I won’t have to be concerned about how I’m going to feed that addiction!

    1. By the way God has put it on my heart to continue to love my brother and pray for him-after all some one kept loving me enough to pray for me -and I DO love him SO VERY MUCH 😭🙏🏻❤️

      1. Amen! We can’t save people and I trust The Lord that He can ❤️ He’s way better at it then I could EVER imagine!! It is a blessing that when those feelings rise up of “we are not doing enough” that we are reminded through His Holy Spirit that through His finished work through Jesus that we can REST IN HIM!
        Bless you and your family too ( believing on the Lord is a blessing everyday 🙌)
