They have made it so easy for our young people to get drunk. When judgment day comes and they have to go before God, I wonder who will be responsible for these young people. Read Romans 14:21: “It is good neither to drink wine nor anything whereby thy brother stumbleth or is offended or is made weak.”
This testimony about the bottle of liquor was sent to me to pass out for people to read. Please, moms and dads, read this and take it to heart. It’s real, a bottle of liquor, a telephone call late one night brought a man to the scene of an accident. His daughter and her escort’s lifeless bodies were still pinned in the wreckage. A bottle, whose spilled contents filled the air with a strong odor of alcohol, had rolled out of the crushed vehicle. That grief-stricken father reached down and picked up the bottle. Clutching it in his trembling hands, he uttered these words, “If I could get my hands on the one who sold them this stuff, I’d hang him.” Later that same evening when he arrived home, this distraught parent opened the cupboard to reach for a drink from his bottle. It was gone. In its place was a note which read, “Daddy hope you don’t mind we borrowed your bottle tonight.”
“Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.” (Proverbs 20:1). I could have almost written this — a young man hit my daughter and her friend. They were five minutes from home. The young man was drunk and ran a stop sign. It killed her friend and almost killed my daughter. I thank God every day for letting her live. Please, parents listen to this. It is real, and it’s happening everyday. Will you be the one that sold a child the alcohol?
