Under Gods Command

Proverbs 31:4-7 It is not for Kings, O Lemuel-not for Kings to drink wine, not for rulers to crave beer, lest they drink and forget what the law decrees, and deprive all the oppressed of their rights. Give beer to those who are perishing, wine to those who are in anguish; let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more.

Drunkenness might be understandable among dying people in great pain, but it is inexcusable for national leaders. Alcohol clouds the mind and can lead to injustice and poor decisions. Leaders have better things to do than destroy themselves with alcohol.

We are told that every day in Washington there are many cocktail parties for our government officials. Republicans and Democrats both have this in common-the party membership doesn’t make any difference. It is tragic to have drinking men in high potions of government!
