LETTER: Men, prove that you love your wives and children!

lettertotheeditor-300x2243Life, or alcohol? Which is more important? Any normal thinking individual will say “life!” However, quite a number of men in our society show that alcohol is more important to them than life.

For instance, the moment some men get up in the morning, rum is all they want. Some leave home early in the morning, and their wives and children only see them back late evening or night. They do not care whether or not their families eat a meal. They often waste their monies on drinking, making RUM their God. Philippians 3:19.

How sad that is! These men are the God-appointed heads of their families. 1 Corinthians 11:3; Ephesians 6:4. In effect, these men are saying to God: “God, I am not accepting the role you gave me as head of my family! NO! I want to be free to do what I want – to leave home and drink alcohol to my own satisfaction! God, let my wife run the home. I have little or no responsibility toward her or my children!”

Can we imagine a mere man saying that to the most powerful person in existence, God the Almighty, his own maker? Exodus 6:3; Psalm 95:6; Proverbs 22:2. Utter disrespect!

While alcohol is a food that can be used by the body, God’s word recommend using it in moderation, as the apostle Paul said to Timothy. 1 Timothy 5:23. Job 1:13, 18. However, using too much alcohol and getting drunk is a sin in God’s eyes. Proverbs 23:29, 30. Drunkards will NOT inherit God’s Kingdom. 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10.

Commendations are in order for real men who shoulder their responsibilities well in their families. To those men who allow themselves to be carried away by alcohol, please make a change for the better. 1 Corinthians 6:11. Stop wasting money on too much alcohol.

Use the money to help your families in providing needed food, clothing, medication etc. Prove that you really love your wives and children. Ephesians 5:25, 28, 33; 1 Thessalonians 2:11. As husbands and fathers, they will truly love you in return.

  1. This "article" is a bunch of hogwash! You are merely talking about the symptoms of a deeper problem, the deterioration of our cultural values. Women have held the role of raising the next generation since times immemorial. Women, due to their maternal instincts have a biological advantage in this regard, and effectively decide what the future of our species, values, and culture will be.

    Now that women are busy at work with no clearly defined replacement in the home, is it really that surprising social fabrics have been severed? The Government is effectively raising your children, and ask yourself: when has the government ever done a good job?

    So in reply to your little rant there, men are presently failing women, because their mothers failed them and the cycle continues.

    Now, that is not to say that I think women should stay at home, quite the opposite. I think work is a healthy part of life. The problem is when women entered the workforce no adjustments were made. The same 8-4 work day was expected of both sexes leaving a void in the home with no compensatory arrangement. If both sexes are encouraged to work, then sufficient time should be given, by the secular world, for either of them to play a larger role in raising their young.

    So, my friend, i hope you a little more enlightened on the depth of the issue we are facing. This is far more involved than a simple alcoholism problem.

  2. The problem is young people learn / allow to drink at too much an early age. Going out in st lucia, I notice children drinking everywhere out in the open without a care who sees them, given they are allow to drink.

  3. Many women drink now and don't take care of their children. In a time of equal rights why are men still viewed as a source of income???

  5. Brother,

    As much as what you are saying are great words of wisdom I beleive that you have made your observations from just looking and not investigating.

    Are you aware that there are many ways in which a person can deal with and tolerate and by extension go through what we know as "LIFE".

    1. Why do people drink?
    2. Is there any form of satisfaction gained from drinking?
    3. Is the individual of normal thinking?
    4. Are there any emotions involved in the way one drinks?
    5. Whats the stress level?

    The above questions represents just a few scenarios that can lead up to what we may see. The very same family you make mention of may be the cause of ones actions.

    Sometimes stuff looks bad just because we are not involved or haven't reached that point as yet. Sometimes we need help and no one seems to be offering.

    Nonetheless good looking out for our folks.
