In the book Saturate, Jeff Vanderstelt speaks of taking something good from God and making it a god. He says, “We do this with sex, friendships, food, alcohol, work, and even children and spouses.” While alcohol may be good, it can quickly become a god; it can easily become “a master.” After the Apostle Paul warned the Corinthians that “neither the sexually immoral … nor drunkards … will inherit the kingdom of God,” he said, “I will not be mastered by anything,” (1 Cor. 6:9-12). It is easy to take something good—even a gift of God—and misuse or abuse it. When it masters us, it becomes a god. When is becomes twisted or misused, it can become ruinous and destructive.
