Number 19: A Sick Feeling

Friday, April 12, 2013

Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? 
Those who linger over wine, who go to sample bowls of mixed wine. Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly! In the end it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper. Your eyes will see strange sights and your mind imagine confusing things. 
You will be like one sleeping on the high seas, lying on top of the rigging. "They hit me," you will say, "but I'm not hurt! They beat me, but I don't feel it! When will I wake up so I can find another drink?" Proverbs 23:29-35

This falls into the, "Wow, didn't know the Bible talked about this stuff!" category. But, hey, truth.

{Saying Number 19 is part of a series I'm featuring on Fridays. It comes straight from the Bible, and you can read more here: 30 Sayings of the Wise}
