“Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise men turn to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.”
It’s not an accident that firewater is also called spirits. Firewater affects our judgments. The Great Spirit created a set of laws and principles by which we are to live our lives. When we have problems we should pray and ask for the wisdom of these laws. If instead we turn to liquor, our judgement will be affected. It is the decision and choice made under the influence of booze that causes us to be fools. We need to learn to lean on prayer and not on the spirits of alcohol.
Great Spirit, teach me to pray. Let not one drop of liquor touch my lips today.
Define: to explain or identify the nature or essential qualities of; describe:
Judge: to form an opinion or estimate:
We can not live a life on this earth without being defined or judged by others. The question is do we listen to those definitions and judgements? Some may say, yes to the positives and nay to the negatives. Yet for myself, I want to say yes to the negatives as well. Even if the words hurt at the time, once I give it some thought, I can change for the better. I strive to be better than any expectations and at the end of the day, as I have been saying for the past few years.. I am selfish.. I will take what you have to give and use it to my best interest.
Judge and define away!!
