Drunks cannot rule – the people will suffer – what do we see?

 Dear Mr. Editor:

Since I shared these passages with you, I feel moved to ask you to publish these for our people to think about. It can make I think for good discussion as there are those who I am sure will not understand the message, by taking literally every word and not realise when these were written. But please let us remember, as Montserrat claims it is a Christian country, that the words of scripture are eternal.

One bible translation adds the word ‘ruler’. I say this just in case we say we have no kings in Montserrat.

Proverbs 31:1-9 GNBDK

“These are the solemn words which King Lemuel’s mother said to him: “You are my own dear son, the answer to my prayers. What shall I tell you? Don’t spend all your energy on sex and all your money on women; they have destroyed kings. Listen, Lemuel. Kings should not drink wine or have a craving for alcohol. When they drink, they forget the laws and ignore the rights of people in need. Alcohol is for people who are dying, for those who are in misery. Let them drink and forget their poverty and unhappiness. “Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless. Speak for them and be a righteous judge. Protect the rights of the poor and needy.””

Proverbs 31:25-31 GNBDK

“She is strong and respected and not afraid of the future. She speaks with a gentle wisdom. She is always busy and looks after her family’s needs. Her children show their appreciation, and her husband praises her. He says, “Many women are good wives, but you are the best of them all.” Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honours the Lord should be praised. Give her credit for all she does. She deserves the respect of everyone.”

Now, I would like you to be comforted with the following.

Ecclesiastes 1:18 GNBDK

“The wiser you are, the more worries you have; the more you know, the more it hurts.”
