Now, the book of Proverbs was written by a fellow named Solomon. And you all remember Solomon was a very, very wise, very
learned individual. He might have been the first social worker the world had ever seen. Yeah, whenever people had a problem they
went to Solomon to get the answer for it. And apparently somebody asked him one time about alcoholism, cause he describes us in
the Proverbs (23:29). He said,

Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has wounds without cause?
Who has redness of eye? They that tarry long at the wine.

J & C Everybody was a wino in those days; they didn’t have the hard stuff like we got it today.

He said, You will be as one who stoopeth in the midst of the sea.

J & C Remember how you used to lay down in bed and that old bed start moving around on you.

Or that sleepeth at the top of a tall mast.

J & C You know the way a mast sways back and forth.

And he said, You will say they have beaten me and I felt it not.

J & C And he surely knew some of us men,

he said, And thine eyes shall behold strange women.

J & C Alcoholics really haven’t changed very much have they?

And thine heart shall utter perverse things.

J & C Like trust me honey, please trust me. He said, and yet,

They will arise in the morning and seek it yet again
