In a recent advert from Guinness, the slogan was "There is a drop of greatness in every man". It is logical to think that there is a drop of greatness in every man, however, what is contentious about Guinness' claim is the ascription of greatness to drinking of Guinness stout, an alcoholic beverage.
There are several reasons people give for their drinking habit. Many take to strong drinks not just for the satisfaction they get from it but for the reason that it gives them a high sensation and a feeling of importance. If you have ever heard of social drinking, you would be convinced that many indulge in drinking to impress friends, colleagues at the work place and so on. What is more regrettable is the fact that some who claim Christianity also engage in social drinking.
Well, true greatness does not come from drinking for the Bible tells me that wine is a mocker. It mocks families, for when it takes hold of a man, such becomes irresponsible and would spend his last dime on drink to the detriment of his children's school fee and the bills at home. It mocks our spirituality for wine also has its spirit. It is absolutely impossible for us to be filled with God's spirit and also be filled with the wine spirit.
Let us not be deceived by adverts. Let us keep away from strong drink for wisdom is to " abstain from all appearance of evil" (1 Thessalonians 4 vs 22), "and do not be drunk with wine,...but be filled with the Holy Spirit". (Ephesians 5 vs 18). True greatness, more than a drop of greatness is to be filled at all times with the Holy Spirit!
