Daily Bible Verse - 1/14/2008 - Proverbs 23:20-21

NIV Do not join those who drink too much wine
or gorge themselves on meat,
for drunkards and gluttons become poor,
and drowsiness clothes them in rags.
KJV Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
NASB Do not be with heavy drinkers of wine,
Or with gluttonous eaters of meat;
For the heavy drinker and the glutton will come to poverty,
And drowsiness will clothe one with rags.
Proverbs 23:20-21

The drunkard and the glutton have no self-control, and this fact plagues them.

Cause & Effect
This Epicurean life-style centering upon self-gratification naturally produces laziness and sluggardness, with poverty as the inevitable result.

Basically, letting anything but God be in control of you and your life is bound to lead to disaster!

Put your faith in Him and Him alone and you won't be disapointed!!!
