Book Of Proverbs: 20:1 Wine Is A Luxurious Thing

Wisdom is not found in great quantities of wine.

20:1. Wine is a luxurious thing, and drunkenness riotous: whosoever is delighted therewith, shall not be wise.

 If you take the first two phrases of today's verse, you'll see that wine is not forbidden or considered evil by itself. It is luxurious. It is a gift, a reward, a comfort.

However, if consumption of wine leads to drunkenness, which is described as riotous, you have trouble on your hands.

How many people do you know who connot handle their liquor? What has it done to their lives? Surely, excess is not wise.

If you had to sum up today's verse, moderation is the message. Enjoy the good things of life - not just wine, but entertainment, recreation, play; but if you overdo it, you'll have to face the consequences.

The Book of Proverbs teaches that the path to wisdom is through knowledge and understanding. Comprehending what is today's message and understanding it will lead you to wisdom.

Book of Proverbs, 20:1
