Drunk Driving On My Hot Button!

Have I ever told you I don’t like drunk drivers. If it was left up to me, the first DUI that a person gets would land them in jail for a month automatically.
Second time would keep them there for a year.
Third time, throw away the key.
There is no excuse for drunk driving!
A Lufkin man was killed in New Mexico; hit by an alleged drunk driver while he was helping someone else stranded on the road.
I remember several years ago passing a driver that was weaving all over the road.
Once in front of him I watched in my rearview as he went off the shoulder, drove the ditch, turn sideways, and shot across the highway landing the truck he was driving on its side.
I was the first to turn around and arrive on the scene.
He was standing up in his cab, knee deep in beer cans.
I was glad he wasn’t hurt but furious at the same time.
He wanted to get his truck turned up right so he could get on home; then his family shows up and wants the same thing.
“If he gets caught he’ll go to jail. This will be his third DUI!” they said.
He was staying and going to jail if I had anything to do with it.
What if he had hit another car?
What if that car had been my family?
I don’t understand why people have a need to drink to begin with but to top it off with driving is totally beyond my comprehension.
The Bible says do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God. Eph 5:18-21
If you’re a Christian, which would you rather have; a drink or to be filled with the Spirit?
I’ll take the latter.

One thought on “Drunk Driving On My Hot Button!

  1. A few times I’ve been drunk with the Spirit of God. The joy, peace, health, are all the wonderful things we desire, but can not enjoy unless we are in His presence. That is where I prefer to be. (truely a mountian top) The other, drunk [ before I discovered God loves me] gives you a headach and regrets. I’d rather walk in the powerful hope, and gained knowledge of the Spirit. Speaking of driving…when with the Lord…I have arrived and not realized the time nor distance. I’d say thats moving with the Spirit!
