Text: Proverbs 23:26-35 (KJV)

26 My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.

27 For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.

28 She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

29 Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?

30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.

31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.

32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.

33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.

34 Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.

35 They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.

Key Verse: “My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.” – (Proverbs 23:26)


There are two things that easily bring a man to disgrace and reproach. These are immorality and drunkenness. Many have suffered humiliation and avoidable embarrassment due to adultery, fornication and alcohol.

Our text is the plea of our Father in heaven to all His children to give Him their hearts and to let their eyes observe His ways. A man or woman that gives God their heart and allows their eyes to observe God’s ways will never fall into such reproach and disgrace.

Whoever is a drunkard will invariably behold strange things as well as strange women and his heart will brew perverse things. Drunkenness made Noah’s son, Ham, to see his father’s nakedness (Genesis 9:21,22). Lot’s drunkenness made him commit incest with his two daughters (Genesis 19:33-35). It was a life of immorality that made Reuben the first born of Jacob to receive a curse instead of blessing from his father.

Adultery and drunkenness do not only bring sorrow, regrets, troubles, physical injury, bad health and of course shame to their captives, they also result in embarrassment and reproach to the spouse, children, relations and friends. Drunkenness affects a person’s stomach, eyesight, mind and speech and makes the ability to walk and do the right things difficult. The brain cannot be properly coordinated; hence, one begins to act foolishly and senselessly.

To avoid these calamities in one’s life, one needs to take heed to scriptural counsel through forsaking of all evil ways and sinful lifestyle, repenting of every known sin, asking God for forgiveness and inviting Jesus into one’s heart. Jesus remains the only permanent cure to these evil habits. Surrender your life to Him today.

Thought For The Day: Shun Drunkenness and immorality!
