Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more. (Proverbs 31:3-7)
GOD warns everyone, no matter what level of authority we exercise, that we are to do right and live in accordance with His law and His justice; and when we fail (and we all do) that He will recompense accordingly.
All of us have sinned against GOD and come short of His Glory. We are all sinners. If we stopped there, we would be like the dying in this warning; drinking our sorrows away is our only hope. But the GOOD NEWS is that GOD doesn't want our destruction, He wants us to live and have a relationship restored with Him. Jesus Christ, the GOD-Man who is GOD the Son made flesh; came to this earth as a man and put to death the flesh that we might have life, today and abundant. A full, restored, godly life that He lives out in us through His grace and His Spirit.
No matter where GOD has put you, or what authority you have; GOD wants you to use it for Him and His Glory. Live for Him and Praise Him today.
