I got an email today from a reader that asked a good question…
——-
Hey man,

I love reading your blog.

I’ve noticed lately that you’ve become a little more open on Twitter about drinking. I have a few questions for you – Why now? I’m sure it’s not a new thing… I’ve been studying Romans 14 for myself, and I’m just curious to hear your views as a church leader and drinking.

Hope all is well dude,

Let me preface this with these are my opinions.
1.  Yes. I drink.  Not as much as I did before #sexyback11, but I’ll tell you I can throw back some 2 buck chuck with a side of garlic bread.
2.  I take pictures on my twitter of food I eat as well as beer I drink.  If one of the 2 was going to make a brother stumble, I’m picking the In N Out will kill you first.
3.  As with anything, too much is not good.  But just enough is great!
4.  I think wine and beer looks really cool with the Brannan filter on Instagram.

I think the “Why now?” part of the question is interesting.
I did a little search and sure enough, I have posted 2 pics of the bev in the past week.  I don’t exactly know why.
It is not a conscious decision.
But I do know that as my kids get older, I am becoming more and more up front with everything I am.
Cause I don’t want anything in the closet.
And if you are doing something in secret, you probably shouldn’t be doing it at all.

What are your personal convictions about the sippy sippy?
Cheers.
