Food for thought:
When life goes well, people feel strong. But such strength always leads us to a false illusion. For the bad times do come. What right then did we have to feel secure?
The wise man remains sober even while he laughs with joy. The bad times then have no effect on such a man’s perceptions.
But see how the bad times devastate those who live for pleasure and joy. As if such people have a right be at peace in this world.
Perfect strength is sobriety in Christ, it will not be found anywhere else.
