YOU’RE NOT SOBER WHEN YOU SMOKE WEED

BEWARE & BE-AWARE. I’ll say it even when it’s not popular in this current culture!!

“Real Talk With PK!”

YOU ARE NOT SOBER when you are SMOKING WEED!!!

While I was growing up in Hawaii I smoked entirely TOO, TOO MUCH WEED. Alcohol was 1st then before long I began marijuana and in Hawaii is was REALLY GOOD let me tell ya.
I’m not boasting in this but want to make a valid point that requires knowing the quality of what I was smoking.
 
By standards that measured good by how “stoned” you became, I never smoked weed then remained SOBER. The opposite was true. It altered my mood and although I did not black out drunk – myself and EVERYONE who joined me all changed. Some became hyperactive and funny while others mellowed out and had not a care in the world.

The point?????
WHY ARE WE CONSTANTLY fighting for the right to excuse why we “CAN” USE this or that while we cope or need to relax???????

What we should be asking ourselves as it pertains to any substance that we use is;
“WHY ISN’T JESUS ENOUGH TO US TO TAKE THE EDGE OFF?”
FOR THE BELIEVERS our fight is so dangerous that GOD’S WORD REQUIRES US TO BE “ALERT & SOBER MINDED!!” Not just for ourselves but for every life we will come in contact with as in our lives!! We can not become someone’s stumbling block because Jesus has not become enough in our life!!

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
1 Peter 5:8 KJV

Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”
1 Peter 5:8 NLT

I DIDN’T SAY IT  – GOD’S WORD DOES!!
We can’t lead people to find FREEDOM and expect them to remain sober if we are drinking a few beers with them and smoking a joint!!!

“But you must be careful so that your freedom does not cause others with a weaker conscience to stumble. For if others see you—with your “superior knowledge”—eating in the temple of an idol, won’t they be encouraged to violate their conscience by eating food that has been offered to an idol? So because of your superior knowledge, a weak believer for whom Christ died will be destroyed. And when you sin against other believers by encouraging them to do something they believe is wrong, you are sinning against Christ. So if what I eat causes another believer to sin, I will never eat meat again as long as I live—for I don’t want to cause another believer to stumble.”
1 Corinthians 8:9‭-‬13 NLT

Have a blessed day and remember JESUS IS ENOUGH!!!

Love ya. PK
